Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, an innovative university in the Russian Federation, strives to maintain and further develop the academic traditions of its predecessor – Albertina Koenigsberg University. The history of Albertina, one of Europe’s oldest universities, dates back more than 460 years. Over the years, its instructors and lecturers have included: Johann Hamann, Johann Herder, Friedrich Bessel, Friedrich Jakobi, Ferdinand von Lindemann, Adolf Hurwitz, David Hilbert, and Herman von Helmholtz; the founder of Lithuanian literature Kristijonas Donelaitis studied theology at the university; and the writer and composer E.T.A. Hoffman attended lectures in philosophy. The greatest figure in the history of Koenigsberg University is undoubtedly Immanuel Kant, the great philosopher who was once a Russian citizen.
