In this study of Fichte's social and political philosophy, David James offers an interpretation of Fichte's most famous writings in this area, including his Foundations of Natural Right and Addresses to the German Nation, centred on two main themes: property and virtue. These themes provide the basis for a discussion of such issues as what it means to guarantee the freedom of all the citizens of a state, the problem of unequal relations of economic dependence between states, and the differences and connections between the legal and political sphere of right and morality. James also relates Fichte's central social and political ideas to those of other important figures in the history of philosophy, including Locke, Kant and Hegel, as well as to the radical phase of the French Revolution. His account will be of importance to all who are interested in Fichte's philosophy and its intellectual and political context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"James' thoughtful and well-researched book offers a unified approach to such diverse and seemingly unrelated political writings of Fichte as the 1796-1797 Foundations of Natural Right (FNR), the much neglected 1800 The Closed Commercial State (CCS) and the 1808 Addresses to the German Nation (AGN)...." - KienHow Goh, Independent Scholar, Philosophy in Review
"....the importance of German idealism and Fichte's influence upon the creation of the German nation make the book interesting to readers who otherwise read more general or political history..." --Wouter-Jan Oosten, Sociotext Foundation, The Netherlands, Canadian Journal of History
