Historical Note

Robert Adamson (19 January 1852 – 8 February 1902 was a Scottish philosopher and Professor of Logic at Glasgow. Johann Gottlieb Fichte [19 May 1762 – 27 January 1814] was a German philosopher who became a founding figure of the philosophical movement known as German idealism, which developed from the theoretical and ethical writings of Immanuel Kant. Like Descartes and Kant before him, Fichte was motivated by the problem of subjectivity and consciousness. Fichte also wrote works of political philosophy; he has a reputation as one of the fathers of German nationalism.
