Philosophers: Otto Weininger, Carl du Prel, Marc Sangnier

On the 3rd of April –

Austrian Philosopher Otto Weininger was born in Vienna in 1880. He only published one book, Geslecht und Charakter, and committed suicide at the age of 23. He is now generally considered to be somewhat of a misogynist, and that most curious of beings, a Jewish antisemite.
Otto Weininger
We have his book in a Polish translation:
Geschlecht und Charakter (pol.);Płeć i charakter : rozbiór zasadniczy. T. 2 / Otto Weininger ; przeł. Ostar Ortwin.

German occult philosopher (usually these are called theologians, but if you do not adhere to the prevalent view of the Christian God in your philosophy, you get labeled an occultist) Carl du Prel is born in 1839 in Landshut. (By the way the German wikipedia entry has a lot more detail.)
Die Planetenbewohner und die Nebularhypothese : neue Studien zur Entwicklungsgeschichte des Weltalls / von Dr. Carl Du Prel

French catholic philosopher and peace activist Marc Sangnier is born in 1873 in Paris:
