Edmund Pfleiderer (1842-1902) was a German philosopher and theologian.
He entered the ministry (1864) and during the Franco-Prussian War served as army chaplain, an experience described in his Erlebnisse eines Feldgeistlichen (1890). He was afterwards appointed professor ordinarius of philosophy at Kiel (1873), and in 1878 he was elected to the philosophical chair at Tübingen. He published works on Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, empiricism and scepticism in David Hume's philosophy, modern pessimism, Kantic criticism, English philosophy, Heraclitus of Ephesus and many other subjects.
The theologian Otto Pfleiderer was his older brother.
