Excerpt from Popular Works the Nature of the Scholar, the Vocation of Man, the Doctrine of Religion: With a Memoir
Zurich. Although the father, who was a man of consider able intelligence, was fully sensible Of the benefits which a higher education must necessarily confer upon his family, yet his partner raised such a determined opposition to his plans, that it required all F ichte's firmness Of purpose to maintain his position. These duties occupied him the greater part of the day, but he also engaged in some minor literary pursuits. His philosophical studies were in the mean time laid aside. At the request of a friend who had sketched out the plan Of a scriptural epos, he wrote an essay on this form Of poetry, with special reference to Klopstock's Messias. He also translated some of the Odes of Horace, and the whole of Sallust, with an introduction on the style and character of this author. He preached occasionally in Zurich, at Flaach, and at several other places in the neighbourhood, with distinguished success. He likewise drew out a plan for the establishment of a school of oratory in Zurich, which how ever was never realised.
