This collection of 13 essays on the philosophy of Johann Gottlieb Fichte is the first volume in English to focus upon Fichte’s most celebrated and influential philosophical text, his “Grundlage der gesamten Wissenschaftslehre” (Foundation of the Entire Doctrine of Scientific Knowledge). Fichte’s “Grundlage” is an audaciously original effort to recast the Kantian philosophy into a full-blown system of ‘transcendental idealism’. Rejecting all reference to ‘things in themselves’, Fichte described his work as ‘the first philosophy of human freedom’ and as a faithful expression of the true ‘spirit’ of Kant’s critical philosophy. Collectively, these essays constitute an ideal introduction to the reading of Fichte’s notoriously difficult but deeply rewarding work.
