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.
