Fichte-Studien 45:3-19 (2018)

Fichte, who always philosophized with a view to the practical and political spheres, reacted to the events of 1813 with an offer to the government to intervene in the course of events as a “speaker for the state”. After this offer was rejected, he took up his pen to reflect on a political structure that would allow Germany – which would be united sometime in the future – to become a kingdom of reason. The internal logic of this thought led him in his philosophical diaries back to the second major goal of his life: to discover a final version of the ultimately foundation of his philosophical system, the Wissenschaftslehre. He was torn away from this endeavor by death.Fichtes Philosophieren hatte immer auch die Realisierung der sich daraus ergebenden politi-schen Konsequenzen im Blick. Im Jahr 1813 bot er sich der preußischen Regierung als eine Art Staatsredner an, um die Entwicklung in Richtung des von ihm erhofften Vernunftreichs befördern zu helfen. Als dieses Angebot nicht angenommen wurde, widmete er sich neben den politischen Reflexionen wieder der vertieften Begründung der Wissenschaftslehre. Über diesen Arbeiten verstarb er Ende Januar 1814.
