Keywords: Fichte; Addresses to the German Nation; Freedom; Nationalism.

The paper aims to show that the universalistic tone which permeates Fichte's early political texts is also present in those written after 1800, although from a different perspective. In particular, the Author focuses on the "Reden an die deutsche Nation", the text which scholars understand as the farthest from the universalist vocation of the young Fichte. Rather, in the "Addresses to the German Nation", the ultimate aim of Fichte's political philosophy consists in the emancipation of the whole human kind, although mediated by nationalistic particularism.
