Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Karl Friedrich Eusebius Trahndorff (18 October 1782 - 1863) was a German philosopher and theologian. He was born in Berlin. The son of a musician, from the age of twelve Trahndorff attended the school in Oels (now Ole nica), where his father had been appointed chapel director by the Prinz von Brunswick-L neburg, Frederick August I. From 1801 he studied theology and philology in K nigsberg, and on completion of his studies he began a career as a high-school teacher, mostly at the Friedrich-Wilhelm Gymnasium in Berlin but with several years in Bia ystok. As a religious and philosophical writer, Trahndorff belonged to the supernaturalist camp, opposed to theological rationalism and emphasizing the indeducible, supernatural and mystical nature of religious revelation, by implication minimizing the ability of human reason to grasp the content of faith. His polemical work Theos, nicht Kosmos! attempted to combat the growing popularity of Alexander von Humboldt's Kosmos, which he considered incompatible with scripture.show more
