Due partly to the inaccessibility of the German texts, Fichte scholarship within the English-speaking international has tended to target the Jena interval, neglecting the advance of this significant thinker's mature improvement. The essays gathered during this booklet start to right this imbalance. involved in a number of methods with Fichte's post-Jena philosophy, those essays via unusual and rising students show the intensity and breadth of Fichte scholarship being performed in English.
With an creation that locates the essays in philosophical and ancient phrases, the e-book divides into 3 comparable different types: Fichte’s improvement, his view of faith, and different features of his "popular" (or not-so-popular) philosophy.
