Johann Jacob Engel (1741–1802)

Engel, Johann Jacob. A German philosopher (1741–1802); born at Parchim in Mecklenburg. He was professor of philosophy and philology in Berlin. His ‘Philosopher for All the World,’ often reprinted, consisting of narratives, dialogues, letters, and essays, his ‘First Foundations for a Theory of the Different Kinds of Poetry,’ and above all his ‘Herr Lorenz Stark,’ with its fine delineation of everyday life, give him a place in literature.
