### Fichte's thetic judgment

Fichte's thetic judgment

A thetic judgment, however, would be one in which something is asserted, not to be like anything else or opposed to anything else, but simply to be identical with itself : thus it could presuppose NO GROUND of conjunction or distinction at all:
. . .

The first and foremost judgment of this type is " I AM, " in which nothing whatever is affirmed of the self, the place of the predicate being left indefinitely empty for its POSSIBLE characterization.
. . .

Hence, for any given thetic judgment, NO ground can be supplied; but the procedure of the human mind in such judgments generally is based on the SELF 's OWN absolute positing of itself.
