How can the radical Enlightenment be actualized without losing its radical character? Fichte's "radical Enlightenment" and its significance for the contemporary philosophical debate about individual freedom, tolerance and pluralism. (3E000109)

This project examines the historic conceptual conditions of possibility for a new concept of "radical Enlightenment" which, unlike the traditional view and the most recent researches on the Enlightenment, can a)also include enlightened philosophies with a religious dimension, and b) contribute to a critical view of the contemporary debate about the relations between individuals, society/ societies and State.
