Among the book's best features is Wood's ability to translate Fichte's thought into twenty-first century philosophical language. He both reframes Fichte's claims using contemporary vocabulary and gestures toward how those claims might be taken up in current conversation. This allows even those not especially familiar with German Idealism to follow and appreciate Fichte's thought. But Wood's book will also be a valuable resource for experts on Fichte. Wood frequently notes points of disagreement among contemporary scholars, and provides ample footnotes cataloguing opportunities for further study. Thus both those unfamiliar with Fichte and specialists in German Idealism will find it a valuable resource, as Wood adroitly manages both to introduce and to critically engage Fichte's ethical thought. * Caroline A. Buchanan and Daniel Breazeale, Journal of the History of Philosophy *
This book is well-researched, well-argued, clearly-written, and full of richly suggestive ideas; it is just as rigorous an exercise in the history of philosophy as it is in substantive philosophical argumentation . . . it is a truly excellent book on Fichte. * Michael Baur, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
