The vocation of man by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
58 editions published between 1848 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Whatever in the more recent Philosophy is useful beyond the limits of the schools will form the contents of this work, set forth in that order in which it would naturally present itself to unscientific thought. The more profound arguments by which subtle objections and extravagances of over-refined minds are to be met, whatever is but the foundation of other Positive Science,--and lastly, whatever belongs to Pedagogy in its widest sense, that is, to the deliberate and arbitrary Education of the Human Race,--shall remain beyond the limits of our task. These objections are not made by the natural understanding;--Positive Science it leaves to Scholars by profession; and the Education of the Human Race, in so far as that depends upon human effort, to its appointed Teachers and Statesmen. This book is therefore not intended for philosophers by profession, who will find nothing in it that has not been already set forth in other writings of the same author. It ought to be intelligible to all readers who are able to understand a book at all. To those who wish only to repeat, in somewhat varied order, certain phrases which they have already learned by rote, and who mistake this business of the memory for understanding, it will doubtless be found unintelligible"--Preface
Reden an die deutsche Nation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
278 editions published between 1808 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
HauptbeschreibungIn den berühmten "Reden an die deutsche Nation" (1808) entwickelt Fichte das Ideal eines auf philosophische Prinzipien gegründeten Staates, dessen höchstes Ziel die allgemeine Erziehung seiner Mitglieder zur Sittlichkeit im gemeinschaftlichen Handeln darstellt. Fichte begründet die Notwendigkeit der Erhebung der Deutschen gegen Napoleon nicht aus der Einheit der nationalen Herkunft, sondern unter Hinweis auf einen fortschrittlicheren Begriff des Staates
The science of knowing J.G. Fichte's 1804 lectures on the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Considered by some to be his most important text, this series of lectures given by Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814) at his home in Berlin in 1804 is widely regarded as the most perspicuous presentation of his fundamental philosophy. Now available in English, this translation provides Fichte's exploration of the transcendental foundations of experience and knowing in ways that go beyond Kant and Reinhold and charts a promising, novel pathway for German Idealism. Through a close examination of this work one can see that Fichte's thought is much more than a way station between Kant and Hegel, thus making the case for Fichte's independent philosophical importance. The new translation contains a German-English glossary and an extensive introduction and notes by the translator."--BOOK JACKET
Addresses to the German nation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
22 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first translation of Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation for almost 100 years. The series of fourteen speeches, delivered whilst Berlin was under French occupation after Prussia's disastrous defeat at the Battle of Jena in 1806, is widely regarded as a founding document of German nationalism, celebrated and reviled in equal measure. Fichte's account of the distinctiveness of the German people and his belief in the native superiority of its culture helped to shape German national identity throughout the nineteenth century and beyond. With an extensive introduction that puts Fichte's argument in its intellectual and historical context, this edition brings an important and seminal work to a modern readership. All of the usual series features are provided, including notes for further reading and a chronology."--BOOK JACKET

20 editions published between 1970 and 1991 in English and German and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A modern translation of J.G. Fichte's best known philosophical work (including his two explanatory Introductions), which contributed to the development of 19th century German idealism from Kant's critical philosophy
Attempt at a critique of all revelation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
13 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Attempt at a Critique of All Revelation (1792) was the first published work of Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814), the founder of the German idealist movement in philosophy. It predated the system of philosophy which Fichte developed during his years in Jena, and for that reason - and possibly also because of its religious orientation - later commentators have tended to overlook the work in their treatments of Fichte's philosophy. It is, however, already representative of the most interesting aspects of Fichte's thought. It displays an affinity with his later moral psychology, introduces (in theological form) Fichte's distinctively 'second-person' conception of moral requirements, and employs the 'synthetic method' which is crucial to the transcendental systems Fichte developed during his Jena period. This volume offers a clear and accessible translation of the work by Garrett Green, while an introduction by Allen Wood sets the work in its historical and philosophical contexts."--BOOK JACKET
The science of rights; Grundlage des Naturrechts nach Principien der Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
37 editions published between 1869 and 2013 in English and German and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fichte's system of philosophy sets out from the category of quality and proceeds towards the category of freedom, demonstrating at every step that self-activity is the foundation of the qualitative and showing how the qualitative comes to arise from the self-active. Being or existence is not a sort of quiescent substrate underlying all manner of activity, but the very substance of being itself is pure activity. Having shown how the appearance of being and the qualitative arises in the mind through the process of self-activity, Fichte has completed his theory of the intellect and arrived at the beginning of his theory of the will. He calls this the Practical Part of the Science of Knowledge. It is this Practical Part of the Science of Knowledge which furnishes the standpoint of the present work. The one supreme fact in the universe, from Fichte's point of view, is the free will. To discuss this idea in its relation to civil society and the State, both of which institutions arise from the recognition of freedom as the most sacred object in the secular world, is the object of the book before us--"The Science of Rights, " or of jurisprudence. The present work is a translation of Fichte's first sketch of the Philosophy of Rights which appeared in 1796 under the title: "Grundlage des Naturrechts nach Principien der Wissenschaftslehre von Johann Gottlieb Fichte. Jena and Leipzig." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
The system of ethics : according to the principles of the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fichte's System of Ethics, published in 1798, is at once the most accessible presentation of its author's comprehensive philosophical project, the Science of Knowledge or Wissenschaftslehre, and the most important work in moral philosophy written between Kant and Hegel. Fichte's ethics integrates the discussion of our moral duties into the systematic framework of a transcendental theory of the human subject. Its major philosophical themes include the practical nature of self-consciousness, the relation between reason and volition, the essential role of the drives in human willing, the possibility of changing the natural world, the reality of one's own body, the reality of other human beings, and the practical necessity of social relations between human beings. This volume offers a new translation of the work together with an introduction that sets it in its philosophical and historical contexts."--Jacket

Mit dem Entwurf eines merkantilistischen, autarken und sozialen Ständestaates liefert Fichte eine der geschlossensten Konkretisierungen seiner rechtspolitischen Ideen, d.i. das erste Modell einer sozialistischen Planwirtschaft.

Foundations of natural right : according to the principles of the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fichte's thought marks a crucial transitional stage between Kant and post-Kantian philosophy. Foundations of natural right, thought by many to be Fichte's most important work of political philosophy, applies his ideas to fundamental issues in political and legal philosophy, covering such topics as civic freedom, right, private property, contracts, family relations, and the foundations of modern political organization. This volume offers the first complete translation of the work into English, by Michael Baur, together with an introduction by Frederick Neuhouser that sets it in its philosophical and historical context
