Otto Weininger (German: [ˈvaɪnɪŋɐ]; April 3, 1880 – October 4, 1903) was an Austrian philosopher. In 1903, he published the book Geschlecht und Charakter (Sex and Character), which gained popularity after his suicide at the age of 23. Much of Weininger's philosophy is misogynistic and antisemitic and parts of his rhetoric were used by the Nazi regime (while at the same time denouncing him) but was held to be a great genius by the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and the writer August Strindberg (see discussion below) (wikipedia)
