Nineteenth Century Philosophy

Johann Gottlieb Fichte

What are some highlights of Johann Gottlieb Fichte’s career?

As a student at Leipzig University, Fichte studied Benedict de Spinoza’s (1632–1677) philosophy. After he discovered Immanuel Kant (1724–1804), he wrote An Attempt at a Critique of All Revelation, (1792) in which he tried to show that morality was the major part of religion. This was inspired by Kant’s view that an understanding of morality requires an understanding of religion.
