Who was Gottlob Ernst Schulze?

Gottlob Ernst Schulze was born in Heldrungen. Schulze was a professor at Wittenberg, Helmstedt, and Göttingen. His most influential book was Aenesidemus, a skeptical polemic against Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and Karl Leonhard Reinhold's Philosophy of the Elements.

In Göttingen, he advised his student Arthur Schopenhauer to concentrate on the philosophies of Plato and Kant. This advice had a strong influence on Schopenhauer's philosophy. In the winter semester of 1810 and 1811, Schopenhauer studied both psychology and metaphysics under Schulze.

He died in Göttingen.
