Tübingen without taking on the usual curacy; after his educational travels in 1841-42, became pastor of the second parish in Blaubeuren, 1842-43; called 1843 to a theological lectureship in Maulbronn, and 1844 in Tübingen, where he completed his habilitation as private docent in philosophy, and became librarian; as there was no prospect of a full professorship, P. became a gymnasium teacher in Ulm 1855, in Blaubeuren in 1869, and became school director ("Ephorus") in Maulbronn in 1879; the last weeks of his life were spent in the Anstalt Winnenthal)
    • found: Wikipedia, Dec. 4, 2013: "Karl Christian Planck" (Karl Christian Planck; in 1850-1851, published his great book, Die Weltalter, in which he developed a complete original system of philosophy, based on the realist view that thought should proceed from nature to the highest forms of existence in the spiritual life; in so doing, he opposed the idealism of his contemporaries and at the same time the Darwinian theory of descent; the natural consequence of this individuality of opinion was that his books were practically disregarded and Planck was deeply incensed, his later works faring no better; after a short period of nervous prostration he died in an asylum)
