Chapter 1 discusses Fries’ founding role in the birth of neo-Kantianism and his early philosophical development until (and including) 1808, the year of the publication of his Neue Kritik der Vernunft. It explains and (partially) defends his psychologistic interpretation of Kant, and his criticism of the metaphysical idealism of Fichte, Schelling and Hegel. Several sections focus on Fries’ early philosophy of religion, his interpretation of Kant’s transcendental deduction and his account of the thing-in-itself.

Keywords:   psychologism, transcendental deduction, ‘Ahnung’, thing-in-itself, analytic method, synthetic method, New Critique of Reason
