Johann Friedrich Flatt
Johann Friedrich Flatt (February 20, 1759 – November 24, 1821) was a German Protestant theologian and philosopher born in Tübingen. His brother, Karl Christian Flatt (1772–1813), was also a theologian.
He studied philosophy and theology in Tübingen, afterwards continuing his education in Göttingen. In 1785 he became a professor of philosophy at the University of Tübingen, where in 1792 he was appointed as an associate professor of theology. In 1798 he succeeded Gottlob Christian Storr (1746–1805) as a full professor of theology at Tübingen.
He was a disciple of Gottlob Christian Storr, and like his mentor, a representative of the so-called Ältere Tübinger Schule (conservative Tübingen school of theologians) of Biblical Supranaturalism. He is remembered as a defender of Christian moral theology, and for his critical lectures in regard to Kantian philosophy.
