Eduard Gans (1789–1839), jurist and historian in Berlin. In 1819, he founded in conjunction with Leopold Zunz and Moses Moser, the Verein fuer Kultur und Wissenschaft der Juden (Society for Culture and Science of the Jews), the objective of which was to establish a scientific modern study of Judaism, to bring general education to Jewish youth by expanding their cultural horizons, and the reform of traditional Jewish thinking. The society, which proved to be the first step towards the development of Wissenschaft des Judentums, was dissolved in 1824. (Source: EJ)
