Biography

Karl Friedrich Adolf Wuttke's father, a tailor, sent his son to the prestigious Maria Maddalenen Gymnsaium in Wroclaw in 1830. After graduating in 1840, he studied Protestant theology at the University of Wroclaw where he was strongly influenced by the philosopher Christlief Braniss Julius (1792-1873). Subsequently, he was a candidate in Koningsberg (Prussia) as well as in his home town of Wroclaw. Further, he studied theology at Breslau, Berlin, and Halle, where he eventually became "professor ordinarius."

Because of his interest in politics, he was as a member of the party altkonservativen the legislature and also a member of the Prussian House of Representatives.

He is known as the author of a treatise on Christian ethics, (Handbuch der christlichen Sittenlehre, 1860-1863), and works on heathen religion (Die Geschichte des Heidentums, 1851-1853), and a work on superstition (Der deutsche Volksaberglaube der Gegenwart, 1865).

Adolf Wuttke, 19th century German professor and theologian, lived during one of the most intellectually vibrant times of the German-speaking nation's history. With the popularity of Hegelian philosophy and historical criticism of the Bible, German theologians had come to question the view of the world outlined by traditional Christian orthodoxy. Scholars across Europe reevaluated and reinvented the history of Christianity, and they redefined what lay within the bounds of Christian philosophy. Wuttke took on the task of crafting a Christian account of morality, feeling that most Christian philosophers and theologians had favored metaphysics or epistemology over ethics. The first volume of Wuttke's treatise gives an account of moral philosophy as it had developed over the ages, from ancient Egypt to Rome to the Middle Ages to the Protestant Reformation.
