Addresses to the German nation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

370 editions published between 1808 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 3,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first translation of Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation for almost 100 years. The series of fourteen speeches, delivered whilst Berlin was under French occupation after Prussia's disastrous defeat at the Battle of Jena in 1806, is widely regarded as a founding document of German nationalism, celebrated and reviled in equal measure. Fichte's account of the distinctiveness of the German people and his belief in the native superiority of its culture helped to shape German national identity throughout the nineteenth century and beyond. With an extensive introduction that puts Fichte's argument in its intellectual and historical context, this edition brings an important and seminal work to a modern readership. All of the usual series features are provided, including notes for further reading and a chronology."--Jacket
The vocation of man by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

308 editions published between 1800 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 3,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The philosophical system of Fichte cannot be adequately apprehended save by a prolonged and careful study not only of his own works but of the Kantian philosophy of which it is an off-shoot. More perhaps than any other speculative theory it is a pure and self consistent idealism; and in spite of the sincere and deep conviction of its creator, that it suffices for the due interpretation of reality, it will always seem to many thinkers too abstract and subjective to serve as an illumination to the concrete and many-sided facts of actual experience. But such a criticism would hardly apply to the work known as "The Vocation of Man." In it we have much, indeed, of Fichte's philosophy, but little of his system-building. His language, moreover, is clear and untechnical, while the metaphysical ideas he promulgates are animated by the strongly personal note and vivified by the glowing intensity of passionate moral conviction that were so characteristic of the man himself. The student familiar with the history of philosophy will find in this little book much that throws light upon other systems, especially on those of Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer and our own modern "pragmatists," but earnest readers even if unacquainted with the speculations of the schools may also gain from it no meagre store of noble and inspiring thoughts"--Introduction.

The science of knowing : J.G. Fichte's 1804 lectures on the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered by some to be his most important text, this series of lectures given by Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814) at his home in Berlin in 1804 is widely regarded as the most perspicuous presentation of his fundamental philosophy. Now available in English, this translation provides Fichte's exploration of the transcendental foundations of experience and knowing in ways that go beyond Kant and Reinhold and charts a promising, novel pathway for German Idealism. Through a close examination of this work one can see that Fichte's thought is much more than a way station between Kant and Hegel, thus making the case for Fichte's independent philosophical importance. The new translation contains a German-English glossary and an extensive introduction and notes by the translator."--Jacket

Foundations of transcendental philosophy (Wissenschaftslehre) nova methodo (1796/99) by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A central figure in the development of German idealism, J.G. Fichte (1762-1814) sought to base a systematic account of the transcendental structure of experience upon a morally unshakable confidence in human freedom. Fichte named his version of transcendental idealism, which he continued to develop over the course of his life, the "theory of scientific knowledge" or Wissenschafslehre." "Fichte immediately repudiated his first presentation of the theory, published in 1794 under the title Grundlage der gesamten Wissenschaftslehre (Foundations of the Entire Wissenschaftslehre). Over the winter semesters 1796-97 through 1798-99 in Jena, he provided an entirely new formulation of the rudiments of his philosophy in a lecture course entitled Foundations of Transcendental Philosophy (Wissenschaftslehre) nova methodo. In the present volume, Daniel Breazeale offers the first English translation of these lectures, which are believed to constitute the clearest and most cogently argued statement of the first principles of the Jena Wissenschaftslehre, and which survive only in two student transcripts." "The English text is a composite of the two German versions, including the entire Krause transcript plus extensive passages from the Halle version. In addition, Breazeale provides a comprehensive introduction to the evolution of the Jena Wissenschaftslehre, with particular attention to its relation to the published Grundlage and the later and uncompleted "Attempt at a New Presentation of the Wissenschaftslehre."" "Fichte's Foundations of Transcendental Philosophy is highly relevant to ongoing discussions of the relationship of consciousness to human freedom and to current debates concerning foundationalism. Philosophers interested in German idealism and others working in the history of philosophy, German literature, and intellectual history will welcome this translation."--Jacket
The system of ethics : according to the principles of the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fichte's System of Ethics, published in 1798, is at once the most accessible presentation of its author's comprehensive philosophical project, the Science of Knowledge or Wissenschaftslehre, and the most important work in moral philosophy written between Kant and Hegel. Fichte's ethics integrates the discussion of our moral duties into the systematic framework of a transcendental theory of the human subject. Its major philosophical themes include the practical nature of self-consciousness, the relation between reason and volition, the essential role of the drives in human willing, the possibility of changing the natural world, the reality of one's own body, the reality of other human beings, and the practical necessity of social relations between human beings. This volume offers a new translation of the work together with an introduction that sets it in its philosophical and historical contexts."--Jacket
Attempt at a critique of all revelation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

75 editions published between 1792 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this work, Fichte argued that any revelation in relation to God must be consistent with morality, which was against many aspects of orthodox Christian belief at the time
Science of knowledge (Wissenschaftslehre) with the First and Second introductions by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

24 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fichte's philosophy was pivotal in the development of nineteenth-century German idealism from Kant's critical philosophy. Fichte believed that Kant had posed the one fundamental question of philosophy: how is our experience of the world, as spatio-temporal and law-governed, possible? The answer he works out here is one of the most uncomprimising forms of philosophical idealism. The isolated absolute self is presented as the sole source from which the forms of human knowledge can be dialectically deduced. In the 1974 version of Wissenschaftslehre is Fichte's best known philosophical work; and the two Introductions which Fichte added later throw a helpful light on the system. This, the only modern and reliable translation, was first published in America in 1970, and is now made available again, with corrections, for all those with an interest in Fichte and in German Idealism
Lectures on the theory of ethics (1812) by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated here for the first time into English, this text furnishes a new window into the final phase of Fichte's career. Delivered in the summer of 1812 at the newly founded University of Berlin, Fichte s lectures on ethics explore some of the key concepts and issues in his evolving system of radical idealism. Addressing moral theory, the theory of education, the philosophy of history, and the philosophy of religion, Fichte engages both directly and indirectly with some of his most important contemporaries and philosophical rivals, including Kant, Schelling, and Hegel. Benjamin D. Crowe s translation includes extensive annotations and a German-English glossary. His introduction situates the text systematically, historically, and institutionally within an era of cultural ferment and intellectual experimentation, and includes a bibliography of recent scholarship on Fichte s moral theory and on the final period of his career."--
The science of rights by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

33 editions published between 1869 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fichte's system of philosophy sets out from the category of quality and proceeds towards the category of freedom, demonstrating at every step that self-activity is the foundation of the qualitative and showing how the qualitative comes to arise from the self-active. Being or existence is not a sort of quiescent substrate underlying all manner of activity, but the very substance of being itself is pure activity. Having shown how the appearance of being and the qualitative arises in the mind through the process of self-activity, Fichte has completed his theory of the intellect and arrived at the beginning of his theory of the will. He calls this the Practical Part of the Science of Knowledge. It is this Practical Part of the Science of Knowledge which furnishes the standpoint of the present work. The one supreme fact in the universe, from Fichte's point of view, is the free will. To discuss this idea in its relation to civil society and the State, both of which institutions arise from the recognition of freedom as the most sacred object in the secular world, is the object of the book before us--"The Science of Rights," or of jurisprudence. The present work is a translation of Fichte's first sketch of the Philosophy of Rights which appeared in 1796 under the title: "Grundlage des Naturrechts nach Principien der Wissenschaftslehre von Johann Gottlieb Fichte. Jena and Leipzig." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
