Some Observations on Fichte's Nihilism and Image-Theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper explores the relationship between nihilism and image theory in Fichte’s philosophy. It will be shown that Fichte does not only think of nihilism in terms of Jacobi’s criticism to the doctrine of science. He also provides us for an affirmative concept of nihilism, which is essentially connected with his theory of image and his theory of what we are, we can and we ought to become. In order to identify this hitherto ignored notion of nihilism in Fichte’s doctrine of science, the present paper studies the nihilism concept of Jakob Hermann Obereit (1725-1798).
