The Significance of the Second Cycle of Lectures «Science of Knowledge» (1804) for J. G. Fichte’s Theoretical Philosophy

Abstract

In the article the basic notions of Fichte’s «Science of Knowing» (1804) are briefly examined, and also the translation of principal terms of this edition (Wissenschaftslehre, das Durch, das Soll, das Muß, Einsicht, einsehen, das Einleuchten, einleuchten, Ge-wißheit) is justified. That’s why the peculiarities of argumentation in 15th and 16th lec-tures are examined, which make obvious the structure of Fichte’s late theory: doctrine about truth and doctrine about appearance. In the study is also clarified the relationship between the style of lectures with Fichte’s attempt to elaborate a non-reflexive theory of self-consciousness.
