AbstractFichte's comprehension of Education depends directly upon the way he understands philosophy and philosophizing. The Primacy of Practical Reason is quite noticeable in his philosophy. First of all, Fichte is an orator, a teacher, a rhetorician and an educator. The idea of Man stands at the foundations of his entire philosophy and philosophizing. The precise definition of Man enables a clear and fundamental definition of Education. According to Fichte, Man is a community being. If he strives to be Man, he must not be selfish and egoistic. The role of Scholar and Educator is of particular importance in this. The essence of each individual indeed lies outside himself, yet not in some kind of abstract metaphysics of ethics. It lies in other people and in the general spirit of the community to which Man is directed if he wants to fulfill himself as a being. Man's destiny is not metaphysics but politics.
