In addition to the letters hitherto known from W. Schulz’s edition of Fichte’s Correspondence (letters to the writer Ernst Wagner, to Fichte’s father and other relatives after the death of the latter, to Fouqué, and to earlier students), the principal focus of this volume are the letters exchanged with the authorities while Fichte was the dean and rector of the University of Berlin. Especially interesting are the discussions among the professors concerning student discipline. Bringing the gravity of his office and personality to bear in his intervention on behalf of a Jewish student that had been unfairly treated, Fichte was forced to resign after the vast majority of his colleagues refused to budge from their position.
