BUHLE, JOHANN GOTTLIEB (1763–1821), German scholar and philosopher, was born at Brunswick, and educated at Göttingen. He became professor of philosophy at Göttingen, Moscow (1840) and Brunswick. Of his numerous publications, the most important are the Handbuch der Geschichte der Philosophie (8 vols., 1796–1804), and Geschichte der neueren Philosophie (6 vols., 1800–1805). The latter, elaborate and well written, is lacking in critical appreciation and proportion; there are French and Italian translations. He edited Aratus (2 vols., 1793, 1801) and part of Aristotle (Bipontine edition, vols. i.-v., 1791–1904).
