Alois Adolf Riehl (German: [ʀiːl]; 27 April 1844 – 21 November 1924) was an Austrian Neo-Kantian philosopher. He was born in Bozen (Bolzano) in the Austrian Empire (now in Italy). He was the brother of Josef Riehl.
Riehl studied at Vienna, Munich, Innsbruck and Graz. He worked as a full professor of philosophy at Graz from 1878, then at Freiburg (from 1882 as a replacement for Wilhelm Windelband), Kiel and Halle, and finally at Berlin, where he commissioned Mies van der Rohe to design his house in Neubabelsberg.
For Riehl, philosophy was not the teaching of Weltanschauung, but principally a criticism of perception.
