In this paper I want to investigate the relation between right and morality in Fichte’s theory. My research question for this paper is: What is the relation between right and morality in Fichte’s Wissenschaftslehre during his Jena period? I believe there is a fundamental connection between right and morality in Fichte’s theory of the Jena period. This connection is not yet found in the current debate on Fichte. My thesis is that this fundamental connection is faith as we find it in The Vocation of Man. Fichte uses faith in The Vocation of Man to bring knowledge back to our freedom. There is nothing before this free choice and it is only through this free choice that I can understand right and morality at all.
