Constantin Brunner caught the attention of his contemporaries primarily with his major work published in 1908 "Die Lehre von den Geistigen und vom Volk," and his writings on the "Jewish question." On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth and the 75th of his death, the historical and intellectual dimensions of his personality, his culture and social criticism as well as his philosophical concerns - nearly forgotten today - shall be explored.
