Ludwig Börne and Heinrich Heine were Jewish writers; Eduard Gans, a student of Hegel's, was a highly successful professor of jurisprudence at Berlin University. All were a generation younger than Rahel but knew and admired her. Heine and Börne are often counted among the Young Germans, a progressive literary movement ( 1830-50) advocating a politically committed literature. Its major representatives, Heinrich Laube, Theodor Mundt, Karl Gutzkow, and Georg Büchner, were not Jewish.
