Johann Friedrich Stiebritz was born in Halle on 7 August 1707 the son of a shoemaker. His non-intellectual parents took great care of his education and had him instructed privately. He was a student at the Waisenhaus in Halle from 1714 until 1723, when he went to the University of Halle and became a student of Siegmund Jakob Baumgarten. He had to postpone until 1726, however, his philosophical studies in accordance with a rule emanated at Halle after Wolff’s condemnation. He started philosophy by taking logic classes with Nikolaus Hieronymus Gundling. In 1729 he went to the University of Jena, where he took physics classes with Georg Christoph Hamberger, philosophy with Johann Jakob Syrbius, and theology with Johann Franz Budde and Johann Georg Walch, while staying away from Johann Peter Reusch, Jakob Carpov, and Heinrich Köhler because of the Wolffianism they professed. He graduated in 1730 in theology with a dissertation De donis naturalibus M. Lutheri under the direction of Joachim Lange. In the same year he started teaching oriental language and philosophy at Halle, switched however to the University of Giessen following an invitation of Friedrich Eberhard Rambach. While in Giessen 1731-1733, he met with Professor Rath and the physician Johann Melchior Verdries, who explained to him Wolff’s system. He studied it and went back to Halle, where in 1735 he became adjunct to the Philosophical Faculty, in 1738 extraordinary professor, and in 1743 ordinary professor of economics, political and cameral sciences, a position he maintained to his death in 1772.
