"Ich hatte in jenen Vorlesungen gezeigt, daß unsere Zeit in dem dritten Hauptabschnitte der gesamten Weltzeit stehe, welcher Abschnitt den bloßen sinnlichen Eigennutz zum Antriebe aller seiner lebendigen Regungen und Bewegungen habe; daß diese Zeit in der einzigen..
.. Möglichkeit des genannten Antriebes sich selbst auch vollkommen verstehe und begreife; und daß sie durch diese klare Einsicht ihres Wesens in diesem ihren lebendigen Wesen, tief begründet und unerschütterlich befestigt werde." My tr.: 'In those lecture I had shown that..
.. our age is situated within the third main section of world-history, a section which has sensual self-interest as the motivation of all its vital impulses and movements; moreover, I have shown that this our age is completely absorbed in a-conception according to which..
.. said motivation is only one possible, and that it was deeply justified and imperturbably fortified within its vital nature by this clear understanding of its own essence.'
After "Bewegungen habe", Vogt has inserted the following footnote: "Nach der historischen Konstruktion, welche jene „Grundzüge“ geben, war das erste Zeitalter das des vorgeblichen „Normalvolks“ (WW. VII. 133), bei welchem die Vernunft als Instinkt sicher und gleichmäßig wirkte;..
.. im zweiten Zeitalter herrschte die Vernunft als äußerlich zwingende Autorität (a. a. O. 11); das dritte ist des das [sic! I think that the grammatically-correct order of words would be "das des". The errata on p. 279 don't mention this. LG,I] wahren Wissens, und das fünfte..
.. wird das Weltalter der wahren und höchsten Kunst sein." My tr.:' According to the historical construction which this 'outtline' presents, ..
..the first age was the age of the alleged 'normal people'(WW. VII. 133) [I have to confess that I cannot explain what the abbreviation "WW" stands for; I skimmed the book; it seems not to have a list of abbreviations,e.g. in the backmatter; the abbreviation 'WW' appears first..
.. on page 27 in footnote 1, which says "Was die Prinzenerziehung betrifft, welche Fichte bei diesen Erörterungen nicht vergißt, so äußert er sich außer in den Beiträgen, W.W. IV. 45 auch noch in einer Schrift von 1807, W.W. VII. 523 f und 555 in sehr starken Ausdrücken."
In the book, the abbreviation is not used consistently: sometimes it is written "WW." (e.g. on page 29 where footnote 1 says "Begriff d. W. L. WW."), and sometimes "W.W.", with a dot after the first W (e.g. on page 28, where footnote 2 says "Begriff d. W. L. W.W.").
