In: Mit Fichte philosophieren
Author: Andreas Schmidt

Abstract

This article is devoted to Fichte’s theory of intersubjectivity in his Foundations of Natural Right (1796/97). I will attribute three theses to Fichte. Firstly, an ontological thesis: To be a free rational being consists of socially ascribing a normative status. Secondly, a transcendental thesis: The conviction that other rational beings exist is a necessary condition for consciousness of oneself as a free rational being. Thirdly, a phenomenological thesis: Recognition of other subjects is immediate, not the result of some argument by analogy. It is, however, argued that Fichte’s belief-directed argument is insufficient to preclude skepticism regarding the existence of other subjects.

Zu Fichtes Wissenschaftslehre in den Versionen 1794/95, 1804/II und 1912
Author: Andreas Schmidt
In Fichtes Wissenschaftslehre wird die Autonomie der einen praktischen Vernunft zum unhintergehbaren Grundprinzip, das alle Operationen des Geistes bestimmt. Ziel dieses Buches ist es zu zeigen, dass dieser Grundgedanke sowohl Fichtes Frühphilosophie als auch seiner – noch kaum verstandenen – Spätphilosophie den Charakter eines „Systems der Freiheit“ verleiht.
