Das System der Sittenlehre nach den Principien der Wissenschaftslehre.Jena & Leipzig: Christian Ernst Gabler, 1798 Stock Code: 121988
The author's principal work of ethicsFirst edition of The System of Ethics, the most accessible presentation of its author's comprehensive philosophical project, in which Fichte develops the view of moral activity as a free commitment of the will in disregard of desires and empirical conditions.
His longest single book, it "ranks among the most under-appreciated works in the history of moral philosophy. That has not always been the case; in the early 19th century the work was widely regarded as the most complete and systematic normative ethics on Kantian foundations" (Kosch, p. 1).
Octavo (197 x 114 mm). Recent marbled boards, red paper spine label.
Occasional light spotting throughout, as usual, the odd minor stain; a very good copy.
