    About "Johann Gottlieb Fichte Peter Preuss"

    1. Johann Gottlieb Fichte Peter Preuss

      Johann Gottlieb Fichte was a German philosopher He was one of the founding figures of the philosophical movement known as German idealism, a movement that developed from the theoretical and ethical writings of Immanuel Kant Fichte is often perceived as a figure whose philosophy forms a bridge between the ideas of Kant and the German Idealist Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel Recently, philosophers and scholars have begun to appreciate Fichte as an important philosopher in his own right due to his original insights into the nature of self consciousness or self awareness Like Descartes and Kant before him, the problem of subjectivity and consciousness motivated much of his philosophical rumination Fichte also wrote political philosophy, and is thought of by some as the father of German nationalism.


    1. Αυτή τη στιγμή δε μπορώ να το τελειώσω. Το ξεκίνησα με καλή διάθεση και άπλετο χρόνο μέσα στην άδεια μου, αλλά ωστόσο δε μπόρεσα να προχωρήσω πολύ. Βρίσκω το Φίχτε ψυχαναγκαστικό. Κι άλλοι λένε και ξαναλένε τα ίδια, στην περίπτωση του δεν είναι επαναλαμβανόμενος για να είναι, [...]

    2. this was the first Fichte I've read (prolly should've read science of knowledge before tbqh) so I didn't know what I was getting myself into and I can certainly say it was one hell of a ride. Fichte is an absolute madlad; his first meditation "doubt" leads him to conclusion that if the noumenal world exists and does so independently from us, then it follows that we must be determined by that exterior world and thus freedom is an illusion - Fichte's answers to this problem? he radically refutes t [...]

    3. El idealismo de Fichte es un monumento en cuanto pensamiento y en cuanto documento histórico. Puesto por su propio autor como un sistema que no dice otra cosa, sino solo mejor que el sistema de Kant; y por más que hoy queramos ser materialistas, fenomenologos, o de algún tipo de idealismo que de por desfasado a este pensador o lo que queramos, su lectura resultará siempre fértil para aquel que no quiera dejarlo en letra muerta y se aventure a pensar más allá de lo pensado por él. Añadir [...]

    4. Reading Fichte after Spinoza maybe wasn't such a good idea. The difference is like climbing a mountain (The Ethics) versus splashing in puddles.

    5. To avoid mincing words, Fichte's "Vocation of Man" is all about (1) Skepticism/"Doubt", (2) Solipsism/"Knowledge", and (3) Responsibility/"Faith". He begins with skepticism, which is put forth as humanity's "original position", in which nothing can be known in any meaningful way (and is associated with the mood of despair), to solipsism, in which all knowledge and experience receive grounds in the ego (associated with the mood of vertiginous ecstasy), through to responsibility, in which the self [...]

    6. Read this for a theology class. Fichte is rather important in his rebuttle of German skepticism. The book is divided into 3 sections: "Doubt" "Knowledge" and "Faith" and traces the progress of an imaginary I through different conundrums in the Doubt and Knowledge systems until he reaches synthesis in Faith. At times, very hard to follow, especially in the Knowledge system (think Augustine's Soliloquies), but the end point is made: neither system, doubt or knowledge, work. Faith works, acceptance [...]

    7. This book was written by Fichte to discredit the charges of atheism which were brought against him which forced him to leave the University of Jena. The book is written for non-professional philosophers, he intended it for the greater public; because of this, it is among the easier reads in philosophy.Fichte challenges reality itself in this book. He leads you down his path of thought from doubt to belief in a supreme moral being. He essentially illustrates the historical stages of metaphysical [...]

    8. While it was tempting to just give this a higher rating because it is an actual available, readable, Fichte text, you still have to contend with it being Fichte. While this is slightly more readable even in english than his other texts are it still contains that random assumption method of philosophy and while his central point is enticing the use of practical reason alone and polemical ranting leads to un-grounded assumptions being taken as absolutes and a dearth of theoretical explanations whi [...]

    9. This tiny book continues Kant's system about the nature of subjectivity and consciousness. Fichte mines Kantian views for an immanent handle on subjectivity, deciding on a split subject, one that is known and the other that is knowable. This internal handle is repeated throughout the tradition as a condition of latent content, with predicates and subjects. This text is fairly straight forward to read although at times, the attempt at explicating abstract thought with non-technical language creat [...]

    10. Johann Fichte is both alluring and repelling. The translation of his writing seems to leave much to be desired, yet so much can be gleaned from absorbing it. This is a small novelette in size, but not content.

    11. You don't really expect me to remember what this was about, do you?* I remember Fichte as an anti-semite and a dude who was supposed to be important in relation to Hegel. That's all I got, give me a break, I read this two years ago!

    12. That the poetry of the ideas survives and transcends translation is surely the best possible argument for transcendental idealism.
