Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Birth: Aug. 17, 1770
Stuttgarter Stadtkreis
Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Death: Nov. 14, 1831
Berlin, Germany

German Philosopher. Born Georg Wilhelm Friedrich, he is considered with Fichte and Schelling, the founder of Idealism. Thereafter his dialectic thought evolved towards more rationalist ideas and less romanticiste. His theories have influenced many contemporary philosophers, including Marx, Feuerbach and Sartre, and drew criticism from schools of thought represented by Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Martin Heidegger. He graduated from the University of Tubingen, he taught between 1808 and 1816 at Lyceum of Nuremberg and University of Heidelberg, and since 1818 until 1829 at the University of Berlin, where he was appointed Rector in October of that year . He has written numerous essays, including "Phänomenologie des Geistes", "Philosophie der Geschichte" and "Enzyklopädie philosophischen der Wissenschaften. (bio by: Lucy Caldarelli)
