FRIEDRICH ALBERT LANGE (1828—1875), German philosopher and sociologist, was born on the 28th of September 1828, at Wald, near Solingen, the son of the theologian, J. P. Lange (q.v.). He was educated at Duisburg, Zurich and Bonn, where he distinguished himself by gymnastics as much as by study. In 1852 he became schoolmaster at Cologne; in 18J5 privatdozent in philosophy at Bonn; in 1858 schoolmaster at Duisburg, resigning when the government forbade school- Langeais has a church of the 11th, 12th and 15th centuries but is chiefly interesting for the possession of a large chateau built soon after the middle of the 15th century by Jean Bourre, minister of Louis XI. Here the marriage of Charles VIII. and Anne of Brittany took place in 1491. In the park are the ruins of a keep of late loth-century architecture, built by Fulk Nerra, count of Anjou.
