German philosopher Karl Christian Friedrich Krause is born in Eisenberg, Thuringia.

One of Krause's primary interests will be reconciling faith with reason — specifically, the idea of a God known by faith and the existence of a world known through senses and reason. Krause concludes that God is not a being with a personality, but rather an essence which contains the universe.

This leads Krause to develop a system he calls panentheism: god exists as distinct from nature, but nevertheless also interpenetrates every part of nature.
