“The philosophers of the seventeenth and eighteenth century still hewed to the scholastic typus of the unwed thinker: Bruno, Campanella, Descartes, Spinoza, Malebranche, Leibniz, Wolf, Locke, Hume, Kant. The latter was in Germany the last of those confirmed bachelors [Hagestolze] and their bad theories of marriage. Fichte was the first world-historical philosopher who got married. After him we see Schelling, Herbart, Krause, Wagner, Troxler, and even Catholics like Franz von Baader, all married.”
Karl Rosenkranz, in the first published biography of Hegel.
“What Rosenkranz did not say: they also got divorced.”—Adrian Daub, Uncivil Unions: The Metaphysics of Marriage in German Idealism and Romanticism
