    Much denser than Fichte s Jena writings, this is a move from transcendental philosophy to what some would call transcendent philosophy This is evident despite that fact that Fichte would undoubtedly deny it Instead of taking the I of self consciousness here, he starts with the Absolute and deduces his famous self positing I of the Jena period It moves from an ascending to the absolute , to a descending to the manifold, etc dialectic Most mysterious here is his concept of light whi Much denser than Fichte s Jena writings, this is a move from transcendental philosophy to what some would call transcendent philosophy This is evident despite that fact that Fichte would undoubtedly deny it Instead of taking the I of self consciousness here, he starts with the Absolute and deduces his famous self positing I of the Jena period It moves from an ascending to the absolute , to a descending to the manifold, etc dialectic Most mysterious here is his concept of light which appears to be the way in which the Absolute reveals itself to the insight However, for further clarification, there is an interesting essay in the collection After Jena that discusses the light indepth There s no doubt that this is a magnificent, frustrating text It is, to the best of my rather unqualified estimation, up there with Hegel s Phenomenology in terms of rigor and power.However, as the above mentioned essay mentions, Fichte s Absolute is most likely what Hegel would call a pistol shot Absolute Of course, Hegel had no knowledge of this text

    Following the immediate aftermath of the Critique of Pure Reason, I m inclined to say that this text surpasses Kant s work whether we take Fichte s system to be absolutely unique or, as he would put it, as a mere rearticulation of Kantian philosophy If for no other reason than because he addresses certain ambiguities in critical philosophy that left Kant vulnerable to a wide array of criticism with varying levels of misunderstanding or misinterpretation cf Jacobi s writings on Hume, Reinhold Following the immediate aftermath of the Critique of Pure Reason, I m inclined to say that this text surpasses Kant s work whether we take Fichte s system to be absolutely unique or, as he would put it, as a mere rearticulation of Kantian philosophy If for no other reason than because he addresses certain ambiguities in critical philosophy that left Kant vulnerable to a wide array of criticism with varying levels of misunderstanding or misinterpretation cf Jacobi s writings on Hume, Reinhold s Elementarphilosophie, and Schulze s Aenesidemus as well as Fichte s review thereof , et al A must read and certainly not as merely another Kantian or as a stepping stone on the royal road to Hegel Don t forget Fichte

    Having read some of the most enigmatic philosophers ever Kant, Hegel, Heidegger and gotten something out of them, I feel qualified to recommend every copy of Fichte s Science of Knowledge be burnt This is undoubtedly the most obtuse, enigmatic and possibly incoherent piece of philosophy I have read While some issues are obviously translation based the translation at times is just horrendous , even the philosophical moves made are nearly impossible to penetrate I spend several weeks readi Having read some of the most enigmatic philosophers ever Kant, Hegel, Heidegger and gotten something out of them, I feel qualified to recommend every copy of Fichte s Science of Knowledge be burnt This is undoubtedly the most obtuse, enigmatic and possibly incoherent piece of philosophy I have read While some issues are obviously translation based the translation at times is just horrendous , even the philosophical moves made are nearly impossible to penetrate I spend several weeks reading this closely among both a PhD and PhD candidate in philosophy one of which specializes in German idealism and still got next to nothing from Fichte Unless you enjoy pain and suffering, please do not read this book

    Basically the rawest of the Big 3 German Idealists Schelling and Hegel have the bonus of not starting from scratch, while Fichte might be hard even if you ve read Kant, since Fiche begins with a very original grounding, that is almost like nothing before him No analogies are there to help you make some sense of the philosophy he is trying to do at first No electricity, nature like with Schelling and surely no History, religion or philosophy as concepts to grasp what Fiche is trying to ground Basically the rawest of the Big 3 German Idealists Schelling and Hegel have the bonus of not starting from scratch, while Fichte might be hard even if you ve read Kant, since Fiche begins with a very original grounding, that is almost like nothing before him No analogies are there to help you make some sense of the philosophy he is trying to do at first No electricity, nature like with Schelling and surely no History, religion or philosophy as concepts to grasp what Fiche is trying to ground as the Subject tries to emerge dialectically in his Science of Knowledge Definately only for people who ve read other philosophy and even then it s a building from nothing philosophy that exhausts the mind so much, that it was necessary for 2 others to add themes and real structure After this Fiche hadreadable books and writings that were for a general audience to awaken the German Volkgeist, which I d recommend to non philosophy reads Speeches to the German Nation

    Finished the whole book with less than half of the stuff there understood unsurprisingly only his comments on Kant But still a good read on German Idealism I have to return to this work when I advance.
