Translation of Fichte’s texts written between 1794 and 1799, the period when Fichte was a professor at Jena.
This volume consists of translated selections from the works of Johann Gottlieb Fitche (1762-1814), one of the most important figures in the history of German idealism. Daniel Breazeale has translated technical treatises that expound and defend Fitche’s highly original philosophical system, the “Wissenschaftslehre” or “Theory of Scientific Knowledge,” as well as popular essays, lectures, and social correspondence. Breazeale supplements the translations with an introductory essay, in which he gives a detailed account of the historical, biographical, and philosophical background of the translated selections.
Daniel Breazeale is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Kentucky. He is the translator of Fichte: Early Philosophical Writings and the author of numerous articles on Fichte and German idealism.
