In this text, I argue that what we call the relationship between Kant and Fichte is actually Fichte’s reception of Kant’s philosophy. There are three main concepts for defining this reception: radicalisation, continuity and rupture. I firstly explain these concepts in the context of Fichte’s reception of Kant’s philosophy in general. Then I analyse them in the case of the categories’ deduction of both German philosophers. Finally, I present the content of the present issue according to the three mentioned concepts.
