Clemens Timpler (1563 – 28 February 1624) was a German philosopher, physicist and theologian.

Along with Jakob Degen (1511–1587), he is considered an important Protestant metaphysician, establishing the Protestant Reformed Neuscholastik.

Life[edit]

Timpler was born in Stolpen. In 1600 he joined Bartholomew Keckermann studying philosophy at Leipzig. In April 1595, he became professor of physics at Gymnasium Arnoldinum, a high school in Steinfurt. He taught there until his death.
