The vocation of man; by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
50 editions published between 1848 and 2010 in English and German and held by 1,372 libraries worldwide
"The philosophical system of Fichte cannot be adequately apprehended save by a prolonged and careful study not only of his own works but of the Kantian philosophy of which it is an off-shoot. More perhaps than any other speculative theory it is a pure and self consistent idealism; and in spite of the sincere and deep conviction of its creator, that it suffices for the due interpretation of reality, it will always seem to many thinkers too abstract and subjective to serve as an illumination to the concrete and many-sided facts of actual experience. But such a criticism would hardly apply to the work known as "The Vocation of Man." In it we have much, indeed, of Fichte's philosophy, but little of his system-building. His language, moreover, is clear and untechnical, while the metaphysical ideas he promulgates are animated by the strongly personal note and vivified by the glowing intensity of passionate moral conviction that were so characteristic of the man himself. The student familiar with the history of philosophy will find in this little book much that throws light upon other systems, especially on those of Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer and our own modern "pragmatists, " but earnest readers even if unacquainted with the speculations of the schools may also gain from it no meagre store of noble and inspiring thoughts"--Introduction.

Reden an die deutsche Nation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
252 editions published between 1808 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,290 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( file )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,038 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
Die Bestimmung des Menschen by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
141 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 844 libraries worldwide
Addresses to the German nation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
18 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in English and German and held by 821 libraries worldwide
"In the winter of 1807, while Berlin was occupied by French troops, the philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte presented fourteen public lectures that have long been studied as a major statement of modern nationalism. Yet Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation have also been interpreted by many as a vision of a cosmopolitan alternative to nationalism. This new edition of the Addresses is designed to make Fichte's arguments more accessible to English-speaking readers. The clear, readable, and reliable translation is accompanied by a chronology of the events surrounding Fichte's life, suggestions for further reading, and an index. The groundbreaking introductory essay situates Fichte's theory of the nation state in the history of modern political thought. It provides historians, political theorists, and other students of nationalism with a fresh perspective for considering the interface between cosmopolitanism and republicanism, patriotism and nationalism."--Publisher's website
The closed commercial state by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( file )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 791 libraries worldwide
Attempt at a critique of all revelation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
12 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in English and held by 736 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 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 553 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
The science of rights; Grundlage des Naturrechts nach Principien der Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
35 editions published between 1869 and 2008 in English and German and held by 549 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)

Fichte's thought marks a crucial transitional stage between Kant and post-Kantian philosophy.
