Gabriel Wagner, who usually published under the pseudonym Realis de Vienna, belonged to the influential group of freethinkers in the German Enlightenment who advocated a strict separation of philosophy and theology. He did in fact tolerate the theology which was based on revelation, but was vehemently in favor of physics, mathematics and political science. It was in them that he saw the fundamentals of philosophy.
