Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814) was a German philosopher. He was
one of the founding figures of the philosophical movement known as
German idealism, a movement that developed from the theoretical and
ethical writings of Immanuel Kant. Fichte is often perceived as a
figure whose philosophy forms a bridge between the ideas of Kant
and the German Idealist Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Recently,
philosophers and scholars have begun to appreciate Fichte as an
important philosopher in his own right due to his original insights
into the nature of self-consciousness or self-awareness. Like
Descartes and Kant before him, the problem of subjectivity and
consciousness motivated much of his philosophical rumination.
Fichte also wrote political philosophy, and is thought of by some
as the father of German nationalism. His works include: Attempt at
a Critique of All Revelation (1792), Foundations of Natural Right
(1796), Characteristics of the Present Age (1806) and Addresses to
the German Nation (1808).
