He studied at the high school of his native place and at the celebrated German universities. In 1782 he became professor of philosophy at his alma mater and canon of St. Thomas, as well as president of the assembly of Strasburg pastors. He died in 1795.

His writings, which were mainly in the department of metaphysics and morals, helped only to confirm the reputation secured. The most interesting of his writings are, De pluralitate mundorum (1750, 4to): — De commet cio animi et corporis (1761, 4to): —Psychologia Pythagorica (1773): — De legibus naturae (1775).
