La necessità trascendentale dell'intersoggettività: sul secondo teorema del saggio sul diritto naturale di Fichte

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


In the second theorem of the "Grundlage des Naturrechts" Fichte seems to break the monological system of his "Wissenschaftslehre". In fact he introduces the "exhortation" theory, according to which an empirical being - the only possible subject of a theory of right -, to become conscious of himself as a free human being, must be exhorted to use his own freedom of self position by another subject, also free and rational. Although Fichte's argument is quite ambiguous and raises many doubts, this conception calls into question Fichte's position among the founders of the intersubjective tradition, which was developed by Hegel and in our century by authors like G.H. Mead and J. Habermas.
