Author Code: GFGL

Born: Apr. 11, 1825 - Breslau, Prussia

Died: Aug. 31, 1864 - Carouge, Switzerland

Educated at the University of Breslau and the University of Berlin, and graduated with distinction in 1845. He travelled to Paris to write a book, then returned to Berlin. He met Countess von Hatzfeldt and agree to represent her in a long-time dispute with her separated husband. Lassalle defended the Countess in some 36 courtrooms, and finally won her a settlement in her favour. Out of gratitude, she awarded Lassalle a life-time pension of £750. A committed socialist. he took part in the 1848 Revolution in Germany, urging armed resistance. He was convicted and served six months in prison. In 1858, he published his work on Heraclitus to mixed reviews. Banned from living in Berlin, Lassalle got his friend von Humboldt to intercede with the king and he was allowed to return. He was relatively quiet for many years, but re-entered the political arena in 1862. He introduced his Works' Program and was arrested again for endangering the public peace, and sentenced to 4 months, although he was successful in his appeal and only paid a fine. During the summer of 1864, Lassalle met a young woman and they agreed to marry. Her father rejected Lassalle, and the latter challenged him to a duel, which was accepted on his behalf by Prince Racovita, another suitor. Lassalle was shot in the stomach and died three days later. His works include The Italian War and the Tasks of Prussia (1859), The System of Acquired Rights (1861), On Constitutional Systems (1862), On the Labour Problem (1863) and What Is Capital? (1900 Posthumous).
