La Dottrina della Scienza e l'Aufklärung

The present contribution aims at restoring Fichte’s view of Aufklärung, both from a theoretical and from a historical point of view. The paper thus focuses on Fichte’s judgement of the French revolution and on his gradual abandonment of an initial enthusiastic attitude towards the Aufklärung. The Enlightenment process is criticised by Fichte because of its fossilization: the usefulness of every historical process can rather only be in its dialectics. Such an analysis should also encourage a reflection on why from the emancipating process which has begun with the Enlightenment we have come to the "crystallized" set of current "-isms " as suffixes.
