Rudolf Christoph Eucken (1846-1926)

Awarded the Prize “in recognition of his earnest search for truth, his penetrating power of thought, his wide range of vision, and the warmth and strength in presentation with which in his numerous works he has vindicated and developed an idealistic philosophy of life.”

He studied philosophy, philology, and history at the universities of Berlin and Gottingen, where he took his doctorate in 1866.
