All the well-known people of that period, from Alexander and Napoleon to Madame de Stael, Photius, Schelling, Fichte, Chateaubriand, and the rest, pass before their stern judgment seat and are acquitted or condemned according to whether they conduced to progress or to reaction.
His main interest, however, was now in philosophy; perhaps no Englishman has ever had a more profoundly philosophical mind; and through scattered writings and through his stimulating though prolix talks to friends and disciples he performed a very great service to English thought by introducing the viewpoint and ideas of the German transcendentalists, such as Kant, Schelling, and Fichte. During his last eighteen years he lived mostly in sad acceptance of defeat, though still much honored, in the house of a London physician.

UAE law firm Fichte & Co Legal recently held a seminar in Dubai, which tackled the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) 2020 mandate and its impact on the world's leading ports, including Fujairah and Singapore.

In 13 papers (two in German) from a March 2017 conference in Amsterdam, they consider such topics as free will in antiquity and Kant, the freedom of the monad and the subject of freedom, Kant on "practical freedom" and its transcendental possibilities, absolute spontaneity and self-determination: the fact of reason and the categories of freedom, sameness and otherness in the free principle of philosophy: Fichte's Wissenschaftslehre compared to Hegel's Science of Logic, and Kant's conception of cosmological freedom and its metaphysical legacy.
From the point of view of the theory of development, such elements of self-organization as "cooperative" evolution of structures of living systems, spontaneous nature of the bifurcation are especially worthy of philosophical reflection, meaning that when the philosophical system reaches the extreme point of its development (as, for example, Fichte's system), it then rolls back, in the direction of metaphysics before Kant, or transitions to a position of transcendental philosophy, where nature itself (especially in Fichte's "Doctrine of Science" of 1794) is understood as the "border of I".
