Summary
The focus of the book is a systematic exposition of Fichte's most important ethical work, the System of Ethics (1798). It places this work in the context of Fichte's life and career, of his philosophical system as conceived in the later Jena period, and in relation to his philosophy of right or justice and politics. Following a brief account of Fichte's life, the book sets out the partial development of his Doctrine of Science and then the System of Ethics, with its implications for notions of freedom, moral authority, conscience, duty, and right. This account develops and emphasizes the social and political radicalism of Fichte's moral and political philosophy, and brings out the philosophical interest of Fichte's positions and arguments for present-day philosophy. It defends the position that he is a major thinker in the history of ethics, and the most important figure in the history of modern continental philosophy in the past two centuries.--
