Johann Adam Bergk

Johann Adam Bergk (1769 – 1834, Leipzig) was a German philosopher and publicist.

Bergk was professor of philosophy and jurisprudence at the University of Leipzig. A Kantian, he defended the French revolution in his ''Untersuchungen aus dem Natur-, Staats- und Völkerrechte'' (1796) and translated Beccaria into German.

During the Napoleonic occupation of Saxony he frequently came into conflict with the French censorship, e.g. his journal "''Der europäische Aufseher''" (i.e. ''The European Guard'') was banned.

He was the father of the philologist Theodor Bergk. Provided by Wikipedia
