Rather my goal here is (1) to show that Fichte uses the term "intellectual intuition" in a different sense than the one given in Kant's articulation of transcendental idealism and (2) to demonstrate the ways in which Fichte shared a position already presented by Kant by advancing it further into a new original principle of the self-posited I.
The identification of pure apperception with an act of the mind, which is evident in Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, echoes in Fichte's 1794 Wissenschaftslehre, (32) In Fichte's systematic philosophy, "the self-posited I" expresses both the I's act of positing itself and the fact that the I has been thus self-posited.
However, we should be careful to not simply identify or reduce Fichte's principle of self-posited I to the Kant's concept of the transcendental unity of apperception.
