ACTIONS AND THEIR ACTORS

EDITORIAL

To study actions means to thematize that which is most common and hidden; by thematizing it, one discloses its non-obviousness. Every theory of action begins by describing a specific conceptual field, one that is characterized by self-understanding and motivation, within the more general, semantic area having to do with movements, processes, and behaviors.

Fichte

After suggesting five ways in which Fichte’s philosophy can be regarded as a philosophy of action (§ 1) and explaining the systematic meaning of the primacy of the practical in Fichte (§ 2), this article focuses on the feeling that accompanies right action according to Fichte.
