German physician regarded as the founder and first ordinarius of social hygiene in Germany. In 1902 he developed his theory of social hygiene, which he summarized ten years later in his probably most important work, Social Pathology. According to his theory, the social environment of the patient has an influence on the course of diseases as well as on their healing. However, this theory did not find any particular attention at the time, because social conditions did not play a significant role in the strictly scientific-oriented medicine of his time.
He died on 4 September 1931 in Berlin, aged 61.
