Oken, Lorenz (1779-1855)

Lorenz Oken, influenced by Pythagorean mysticism, became a self-proclaimed pantheist. In his time, this German physician, philosopher, and mystic was considered a brilliant thinker be many Americans, especially the New England transcendentalists. To Oken, God exhibited himself in nature, and when God come to man he meets himself, for man is a god created by God. A.G.H.
