As one of the most significant scholars of the Austrian “Vormärz” epoch, Ernst Baron von Feuchtersleben (1806–1849) founded the first chair of academic psychiatry in Vienna and initiated the liberal school reform in the 1848 revolution. In contemporary cultural life he was engaged as a philosopher, an art critic and a poet.
