Philosopher. He is considered with philosophers Johann Gottlieb Fichte and Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling as the founders of Idealism. Thereafter his dialectic thought evolved towards more rationalist ideas and less romanticiste. His theories have influenced many contemporary philosophers, including Karl Marx, Ludwig Andreas von Feuerbach and Jean-Paul Sartre, and drew criticism from schools of thought represented by Arthur Schopenhauer, Soren Kierkegaard, Friedrich 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.
