Richard Kroner

Richard Kroner was a German neo-Hegelian philosopher, known for his Von Kant bis Hegel, a classic history of German idealism written from the neo-Hegelian point of view. He was a Christian, from a Jewish background, he is known for his formulation of Hegel as'the Protestant Aquinas'. His Jewish ancestry led him to be'suspended' under Nazi legislation in 1934, from his university position at Kiel, he was replaced by Hans-Georg Gadamer, a personal friend. The American philosopher Otis Lee studied with Kroner for the academic year 1933–1934 and helped him escape to the United States and find a new academic position at Manhattan's Union Theological Seminary. Kroner's ideas on Hegel, including his slant from Kierkegaard, were taken up by some existentialist thinkers, including Lev Shestov and Nikolai Berdyaev. Zweck und Gesetz in der Biologie. Eine logische Untersuchung Kants Weltanschauung Hegel. Zum 100. Todestag Die Selbstverwirklichung des Geistes. Prolegomena zur Kulturphilosophie Von Kant bis Hegel.
