History of Philosophy

German philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte is born in Berlin. Fichte will become one of the founders of German Idealism.

His ideas will connect the theoretical writings of Immanuel Kant with the philosophical idealism of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

As part of trying to establish a rational basis for religious belief, Johann Gottlieb Fichte will argue that genuine religion is really belief in the divinity of moral laws. Moral reasoning is, in turn, the foundation of all other knowledge we might possess.
