This week we discuss the ‘First Introduction’ to Fichte’s 1797/8 Attempt at a New Presentation of the Science of Knowledge. We’ll discuss, in particular, Fichte’s conception of self-consciousness and its relation to Fichte’s conception of the contrast between dogmatism and idealism. We’ll also compare this with Schelling’s similar contrast between dogmatism and criticism in the Ich-Schrift.
