Reference work entry


Mangoldt was born in Dresden in 1824 and died in 1868 of a heart attack after a short life. He was an eminent theorist in economics, yet greatly underrated by his German contemporaries. He received his doctorate in Tübingen (1847) and was afterwards a civil servant in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – a post he resigned for political reasons – and became editor of the official Weimarer Zeitung (1852). His academic career began in 1855 as Privatdozent in Göttingen and ended as Professor of Political Science and Political Economic after only six years (1862–8) at the University of Freiburg (Breisgau).
