Summary/Abstract: The chapter presents Marek J. Siemek’s original interpretation of the Fichtean ontology of knowing and knowledge, as developed on the basis of a radical reading of Kant’s transcendental philosophy. According to Siemek, the ‘object’ of transcendental reflection is human knowledge itself, hence, transcendentalism broke with the old-fashioned subject–object dualist schema and replaced it with the power of the human mind’s activity, which gives structure and shape to all the results of human intelligence. In his book "The idea of transcendentalism by Fichte and Kant" (German edition 1984), Siemek expounded his groundbreaking transition from the epistemic to epistemological “field” as a result of the Science of Knowing (Wissenschaftslehre), already implicitly pioneered by Kant. The author systematically examines the foundations of Siemek’s epistemological approach and emphasizes its topicality.
