"Annotated translation of the first published work by the German philosopher (1762-1814)..."
--The Chronicle of Higher Education
"....this text is important both historically and in its own right as an attempt to investigate religion from a transcendental standpoint.... Readers also will benefit from Wood's interpretation of the method Fichte utilizes in the text.... English-language Fichte scholarship has been been quite vibrant in recent decades, ranging from new translations of key Fichte texts to the activity of the North American Fichte Society. This new edition of Attempt at a Critique of All Revelation, especially as it includes Wood's excellent introductory essay, is a fine addition to this resurgence of interest in and attention to Fichte's work."
--Kevin Zanelotti, McKendree University, Philosophy in Review

This volume offers a clear and accessible translation by Garrett Green, while Allen Wood's introduction sets the work's historical and philosophical contexts.Visualizza tutta la Descrizione prodotto

Nevertheless, it is an important book in the canon of German idealism, and Cambridge University Press is to be praised for bringing this (and many other) obscure texts to light, keeping them in print so that they may be available to contemporary readers and scholars.
The title was deliberately chosen because Fichte submitted this work to the author of the similarly dense Critique of Pure Reason and Critique of Judgement, and Kant responded favorably to Fichte's text to the point that he helped him get the book published, Fichte's first. This should be no surprise because Fichte tried so mightily to emulate Kant's own approach in his Critiques, but as applied to religion and religious experience.
I really needed a secondary work to help me fully appreciate this text: throughout most of the text I was under the impression that Fichte was seeking to expand the a priori categories enunciated by Kant such as space and time, cause and effect. The earlier sections gave me the impression that Fichte was claiming that acceptance of a code of moral law and the provider of that moral law -- God -- were a priori concepts on the order of the ones identified by Kant. In one of the final chapters, however, Fichte stated outright that this was not the case: "[N]o assumption whatsoever of the reality of this concept in general takes place." Religion and revelation still have their place, but it does not emanate from a priori sources.
Although I'm tempted to give this text only two stars because of the excessive difficulty I had when reading it, I am giving it three instead because I'm sure I would have gotten more out of this text if I had read it in the context of a philosophy class or if I had the benefit of secondary explanatory works. While Fichte is an important thinker in the school of German idealism (some identify him as the founder of German idealism rather than Kant), his writings are sufficiently obscure that most readers would need some degree of assistance in order to fully appreciate the text. A list of suggested readings follows the introduction, and perhaps after reading some of these I may want to add a star or two to this work.
