Fichte, German idealism, and early romanticism by Daniel Breazeale( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of 23 previously unpublished essays explores the relationship between the philosophy of J.G. Fichte and that of other leading thinkers associated with German Idealism and the early Romantic movement. Several papers explore the broader question of Fichte's relationship and contribution to "German idealism" and "German romanticism" in general, while others offer comparative studies of the relationship between Fichte's writings and those of Leibniz, Kant, Schelling, Hegel, Friedrich Schlegel, Novalis, Schleiermacher, and Wilhelm von Humboldt. Taken collectively, this set of essays
Fichte and the phenomenological tradition by Violetta L Waibel( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of previously unpublished papers dealing with the neglected "phenomenological" dimension of the philosophy of Johann Gottlieb Fichte, which it compares and contrasts to the phenomenology of his contemporary Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and to those of Edmund Husserl and his 20th century followers. Issues discussed include a comparision of the early phenomenological method in Fichte and Hegel with the classical phenomenological method in Husserl, Heidegger and Sartre, as well as special topics, namely the problem of self-consciousness and intersubjectivity, very important in Fichte's trancendental philosophy of the Wissenschaftslehre but discussed as well in 20th century phenomenology. Fichte can be said to have invented the theory of intersubjectivity that was first developed by Hegel and then by Husserl, Sartre or Ricœur. Fichte can also be said to have in fact promoted a theory of intentionality based on tendencies, drives, purposes and will, that got a modern shape and language by Husserl and his followers. And even the deduction of the human body in Fichte's practical parts of the Wissenschaftslehre prepares the path for modern twentieth century theories of body, feeling and mind
Foundations of transcendental philosophy (Wissenschaftslehre) nova methodo (1796/99) by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,036 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
Fichte's Vocation of man : new interpretive and critical essays by Daniel Breazeale( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The system of ethics : according to the principles of the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 687 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

Untimely meditations by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main objective of Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy is to expand the range, variety and quality of texts in the history of philosophy which are available in English. The series includes texts by familiar names (such as Descartes and Kant) and also by less well-known authors. Wherever possible, texts are published in complete and unabridged form, and translations are specially commissioned for the series. Each volume contains a critical introduction together with a guide to further reading and any necessary glossaries and textual apparatus. The volumes are designed for student use at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and will be of interest not only to students of philosophy but also to a wider audience of readers in the history of science, the history of theology, and the history of ideas. These four short works were published by Nietzsche between 1873 and 1876. In addition to the ostensible subjects of their individual titles, they deal with such broad topics as the relationship between popular and genuine culture, strategies for cultural reform, the task of philosophy, the nature of education, and the relationship between art, science, and life. They also include Nietzsche's earliest statement of his own understanding of human selfhood as a process of endlessly 'becoming who one is'. As Daniel Breazeale shows in his introduction to this new edition of R.J. Hollingdale's translation of the essays, these four early texts are key documents for understanding the development of Nietzsche's thought and clearly anticipate many of the themes of his later writings. Nietzsche himself always cherished his Untimely Meditations and believed that they provide valuable evidence of his 'becoming and self-overcoming' and constitute a 'public pledge' concerning his own distinctive task as a philosopher. -- from back cover

Fichte : historical contexts/contemporary controversies( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection marks a new era of Anglophone research into the philosophy of J.G. Fichte, both in its historical context and in its relationship to contemporary controversies. Several of the essays demonstrate the relevance of Fichte's thought to current debates over philosophical "foundationalism." Others address such topics as the relationship between morality and law, the role of the imagination, the connection between self-consciousness and intersubjectivity, the status of language, the dialectical character of philosophy, and the relationship between philosophy and mysticism. Still others examine the connections between Fichte's philosophy and that of such thinkers as Leibniz, Schelling, Heidegger, and Tugenhat. This volume also includes the first complete bibliography of English translations of Fichte's writings and of works in English dealing with every aspect of Fichte's thought, which will prove an invaluable research tool for anyone working in this area. The collection will appeal to all scholars, teachers, and students with a general interest in German idealism, as well as specifically in the philosophy of Fichte. It provides both an excellent overview of the current state of research in this field and pointers for future studies

Fichte's addresses to the German nation reconsidered by Daniel Breazeale( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of J.G. Fichte?s best-known works, 'Addresses to the German Nation' is based on a series of speeches he gave in Berlin when the city was under French occupation. They feature Fichte?s diagnosis of his own era in European history as well as his call for a new sense of German national identity, based upon a common language and culture rather than?blood and soil.? These speeches, often interpreted as key documents in the rise of modern nationalism, also contain Fichte?s most sustained reflections on pedagogical issues, including his ideas for a new egalitarian system of Prussian national education. The contributors? reconsideration of the speeches deal not only with technical philosophical issues such as the relationship between language and identity, and the tensions between universal and particular motifs in the text, but also with issues of broader concern, including education, nationalism, and the connection between morality and politics
