John Lachs

Fordham University Press

Lachs seeks to clarify the distinctive features of Fichte's version of idealism, giving special emphasis to his view of the self. In discussing Fichte's view that the self posits itself (and posits itself as positing), Lachs argues that positing is a nontemporal act whose model is the Aristotelian concept of activity. He ends with a critical appraisal of Fichte's treatment of finite selves.
