a trend in neo-Kantianism of the late 19th century in Germany.
The Marburg school was founded by H. Cohen and P. Natorp, professors at the University of Marburg. F. A. Lange was a forerunner of the Marburg school. Members of the school included A. Buchenau, A. Gb’rland, and W. Kinckel and, initially, E. Cassirer and N. Hartmann. Distinct from the Baden school of neo-Kantianism, which was concerned with the problem of values, the Marburg School dealt, for the most part, with epistemology, logic, and methodology.
