   Dr. Hermann Cohen (18421918), German philosopher. Born in Coswig, the son of a cantor, Cohen studied at the Jewish Theological Seminary at Breslau, but gave up his initial plans to become a rabbi. He turned to philosophy, studying first at the University of Breslau and then at the University of Berlin. He received his doctorate from the University of Halle in 1865. In 1873 he was invited by F. A. Lange, the well-known author of the History of Materialism, to become a Privatdozent (lecturer) in philosophy at the University of Marburg. Appointed full professor after only three years, Cohen taught in Marburg until 1912. He spent the last years of his life in Berlin where he taught at the Hochschule fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums.
