Fichte’s appropriation of Kant’s transcendental undertaking not just demonstrated the framework for the next idealist culture (Schelling, Hölderlin, Hegel), but additionally brought philosophical subject matters and methods that might dominate the Continental culture good into the 20 th century.

This e-book deals a brand new interpretation of Fichte’s Jena approach, focusing specifically at the challenge of the objectivity of awareness.
