It is not an idealist , not a romantic call to ethics of conviction as opposed to ethics of responsibility. A very bad but beautiful woman had married a man younger than herself, an idealist , chivalrous, and quite unusually moral.

An idealist , how could she trust herself to Eustace Hignett? To our idealist there was something extremely odious in this sudden offer of money.

The idealist was about to apply his principles of church polity to family life, to the horror of many nominal allies. His was neither the look nor the manner of an idealist , a reformer.

Learn new vocab by taking this fun trivia quiz! Over time, the meaning of the term broadened to include first anyone strongly guided by an ideal, and then those who believed, often unrealistically, in something that might be unattainable—which is probably the most common use of the word today.

Idealism gained popularity in various guises in the 18th-century works of philosophers such as Berkeley, Kant, and Hegel. By the start of the 19th century, the meaning of idealist broadened to describe artists or writers who treated subjects with imagination, in contrast to a naturalist or realist, who depicted a real-world atmosphere in their art.

A few decades later, the term was applied to visionaries, and soon after to people who were so imbued with an ideal that they failed to see the world for what it is.

Today, the word can be a two-edged sword: if a person calls herself an idealist she very likely means it positively, as in the pursuit of a higher good.

This is Schelling's "absolute identity ": the ideas or mental images in the mind are identical to the extended objects which are external to the mind.

Absolute idealism is G. Hegel 's account of how existence is comprehensible as an all-inclusive whole. Hegel called his philosophy "absolute" idealism in contrast to the "subjective idealism" of Berkeley and the "transcendental idealism" of Kant and Fichte, [57] which were not based on a critique of the finite and a dialectical philosophy of history as Hegel's idealism was.

The exercise of reason and intellect enables the philosopher to know ultimate historical reality, the phenomenological constitution of self-determination, the dialectical development of self-awareness and personality in the realm of History.

In his Science of Logic — Hegel argues that finite qualities are not fully "real" because they depend on other finite qualities to determine them.

Qualitative infinity , on the other hand, would be more self-determining and hence more fully real. Similarly finite natural things are less "real"—because they are less self-determining—than spiritual things like morally responsible people, ethical communities and God.

So any doctrine, such as materialism, that asserts that finite qualities or natural objects are fully real is mistaken.

Hegel certainly intends to preserve what he takes to be true of German idealism, in particular Kant's insistence that ethical reason can and does go beyond finite inclinations.

Under Hegel's concept of "subject-object identity," subject and object both have Spirit Hegel's ersatz, redefined, nonsupernatural "God" as their conceptual not metaphysical inner reality—and in that sense are identical.

But until Spirit's "self-realization" occurs and Spirit graduates from Spirit to Absolute Spirit status, subject a human mind mistakenly thinks every "object" it observes is something "alien," meaning something separate or apart from "subject.

When self-realization occurs and Spirit becomes Absolute Spirit, the "finite" man, human becomes the "infinite" "God," divine , replacing the imaginary or "picture-thinking" supernatural God of theism : man becomes God.

Kierkegaard criticized Hegel's idealist philosophy in several of his works, particularly his claim to a comprehensive system that could explain the whole of reality.

Where Hegel argues that an ultimate understanding of the logical structure of the world is an understanding of the logical structure of God 's mind, Kierkegaard asserts that for God reality can be a system but it cannot be so for any human individual because both reality and humans are incomplete and all philosophical systems imply completeness.

For Hegel, a logical system is possible but an existential system is not: "What is rational is actual; and what is actual is rational".

So-called systems have often been characterized and challenged in the assertion that they abrogate the distinction between good and evil, and destroy freedom.

Perhaps one would express oneself quite as definitely, if one said that every such system fantastically dissipates the concept existence.

Being an individual man is a thing that has been abolished, and every speculative philosopher confuses himself with humanity at large; whereby he becomes something infinitely great, and at the same time nothing at all.

A major concern of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit and of the philosophy of Spirit that he lays out in his Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences — is the interrelation between individual humans, which he conceives in terms of "mutual recognition.

Individual human will ought, at the State's highest level of development, to properly coincide with the will of the State. Climacus rejects Hegel's suppression of individuality by pointing out it is impossible to create a valid set of rules or system in any society which can adequately describe existence for any one individual.

Submitting one's will to the State denies personal freedom, choice, and responsibility. In addition, Hegel does believe we can know the structure of God's mind, or ultimate reality.

Hegel agrees with Kierkegaard that both reality and humans are incomplete, inasmuch as we are in time, and reality develops through time.

But the relation between time and eternity is outside time and this is the "logical structure" that Hegel thinks we can know.

Kierkegaard disputes this assertion, because it eliminates the clear distinction between ontology and epistemology. Existence and thought are not identical and one cannot possibly think existence.

Thought is always a form of abstraction, and thus not only is pure existence impossible to think, but all forms in existence are unthinkable; thought depends on language, which merely abstracts from experience, thus separating us from lived experience and the living essence of all beings.

In addition, because we are finite beings, we cannot possibly know or understand anything that is universal or infinite such as God, so we cannot know God exists, since that which transcends time simultaneously transcends human understanding.

Bradley saw reality as a monistic whole apprehended through "feeling", a state in which there is no distinction between the perception and the thing perceived.

Like Berkeley, Bradley thought that nothing can be known to exist unless it is known by a mind. We perceive, on reflection, that to be real, or even barely to exist, must be to fall within sentience Find any piece of existence, take up anything that any one could possibly call a fact, or could in any sense assert to have being, and then judge if it does not consist in sentient experience.

Try to discover any sense in which you can still continue to speak of it, when all perception and feeling have been removed; or point out any fragment of its matter, any aspect of its being, which is not derived from and is not still relative to this source.

When the experiment is made strictly, I can myself conceive of nothing else than the experienced. Bradley was the apparent target of G.

Moore 's radical rejection of idealism. Moore claimed that Bradley did not understand the statement that something is real. We know for certain, through common sense and prephilosophical beliefs, that some things are real, whether they are objects of thought or not, according to Moore.

The article The Refutation of Idealism is one of the first demonstrations of Moore's commitment to analysis.

He examines each of the three terms in the Berkeleian aphorism esse est percipi , "to be is to be perceived", finding that it must mean that the object and the subject are necessarily connected so that "yellow" and "the sensation of yellow" are identical - "to be yellow" is "to be experienced as yellow".

But it also seems there is a difference between "yellow" and "the sensation of yellow" and "that esse is held to be percipi , solely because what is experienced is held to be identical with the experience of it".

Though far from a complete refutation, this was the first strong statement by analytic philosophy against its idealist predecessors, or at any rate against the type of idealism represented by Berkeley.

Actual idealism is a form of idealism developed by Giovanni Gentile that grew into a "grounded" idealism contrasting Kant and Hegel. The idea is a version of Occam's razor; the simpler explanations are always correct.

Actual idealism is the idea that reality is the ongoing act of thinking, or in Italian "pensiero pensante".

He further believes that thoughts are the only concept that truly exist since reality is defined through the act of thinking.

Since thoughts are actions, any conjectured idea can be enacted. This idea not only affects the individual's life, but everyone around them, which in turn affects the state since the people are the state.

The state is a composition of many minds that come together to change the country for better or worse. Gentile theorizes that thoughts can only be conjectured within the bounds of known reality; abstract thinking does not exist.

With accordance to "The Act of Thought of Pure Thought", our actions comprise our thoughts, our thoughts create perception, perceptions define reality, thus we think within our created reality.

The present act of thought is reality but the past is not reality; it is history. The reason being, past can be rewritten through present knowledge and perspective of the event.

The reality that is currently constructed can be completely changed through language e. Actual idealism is regarded as a liberal and tolerant doctrine since it acknowledges that every being picturizes reality, in which their ideas remained hatched, differently.

Even though, reality is a figment of thought. Even though core concept of the theory is famous for its simplification, its application is regarded as extremely ambiguous.

Over the years, philosophers have interpreted it numerously different ways: [68] Holmes took it as metaphysics of the thinking act; Betti as a form of hermeneutics; Harris as a metaphysics of democracy; Fogu as a modernist philosophy of history.

Giovanni Gentile was a key supporter of fascism, regarded by many as the "philosopher of fascism".

Gentile's philosophy was the key to understating fascism as it was believed by many who supported and loved it.

They believed, if priori synthesis of subject and object is true, there is no difference between the individuals in society; they're all one.

Which means that they have equal right, roles, and jobs. In fascist state, submission is given to one leader because individuals act as one body.

In Gentile's view, far more can be accomplished when individuals are under a corporate body than a collection of autonomous individuals.

Pluralistic idealism such as that of Gottfried Leibniz [69] [70] takes the view that there are many individual minds that together underlie the existence of the observed world and make possible the existence of the physical universe.

Leibniz' form of idealism, known as Panpsychism , views "monads" as the true atoms of the universe and as entities having perception.

The monads are "substantial forms of being, "elemental, individual, subject to their own laws, non-interacting, each reflecting the entire universe.

Monads are centers of force, which is substance while space, matter and motion are phenomenal and their form and existence is dependent on the simple and immaterial monads.

There is a pre-established harmony by God , the central monad, between the world in the minds of the monads and the external world of objects.

Leibniz's cosmology embraced traditional Christian theism. The English psychologist and philosopher James Ward inspired by Leibniz had also defended a form of pluralistic idealism.

Personalism is the view that the minds that underlie reality are the minds of persons. Borden Parker Bowne , a philosopher at Boston University, a founder and popularizer of personal idealism, presented it as a substantive reality of persons, the only reality, as known directly in self-consciousness.

Reality is a society of interacting persons dependent on the Supreme Person of God. Other proponents include George Holmes Howison [74] and J.

Howison's personal idealism [76] was also called "California Personalism" by others to distinguish it from the "Boston Personalism" which was of Bowne.

Howison maintained that both impersonal, monistic idealism and materialism run contrary to the experience of moral freedom.

To deny freedom to pursue truth, beauty, and "benignant love" is to undermine every profound human venture, including science, morality, and philosophy.

Brightman and realistic in some senses of the term, though he remained influenced by neoplatonism personal theist Saint Thomas Aquinas address a core issue, namely that of dependence upon an infinite personal God.

Howison, in his book The Limits of Evolution and Other Essays Illustrating the Metaphysical Theory of Personal Idealism , created a democratic notion of personal idealism that extended all the way to God, who was no more the ultimate monarch but the ultimate democrat in eternal relation to other eternal persons.

McTaggart's idealist atheism and Thomas Davidson 's apeirotheism resemble Howisons personal idealism. McTaggart argued that minds alone exist and only relate to each other through love.

Space , time and material objects are unreal. In The Unreality of Time he argued that time is an illusion because it is impossible to produce a coherent account of a sequence of events.

The Nature of Existence contained his arguments that space, time, and matter cannot possibly be real. In his Studies in Hegelian Cosmology Cambridge, , p he declared that metaphysics are not relevant to social and political action.

McTaggart "thought that Hegel was wrong in supposing that metaphysics could show that the state is more than a means to the good of the individuals who compose it".

Why should a Hegelian citizen be surprised that his belief as to the organic nature of the Absolute does not help him in deciding how to vote?

Would a Hegelian engineer be reasonable in expecting that his belief that all matter is spirit should help him in planning a bridge? Thomas Davidson taught a philosophy called " apeirotheism ", a "form of pluralistic idealism Although a perennial source of controversy, Aristotle arguably views the latter as both eternal and immaterial in nature, as exemplified in his theology of unmoved movers.

Idealist notions took a strong hold among physicists of the early 20th century confronted with the paradoxes of quantum physics and the theory of relativity.

In The Grammar of Science , Preface to the 2nd Edition, , Karl Pearson wrote, "There are many signs that a sound idealism is surely replacing, as a basis for natural philosophy, the crude materialism of the older physicists.

Arthur Eddington , a British astrophysicist of the early 20th century, wrote in his book The Nature of the Physical World that "The stuff of the world is mind-stuff":.

The mind-stuff of the world is, of course, something more general than our individual conscious minds The mind-stuff is not spread in space and time; these are part of the cyclic scheme ultimately derived out of it It is necessary to keep reminding ourselves that all knowledge of our environment from which the world of physics is constructed, has entered in the form of messages transmitted along the nerves to the seat of consciousness Consciousness is not sharply defined, but fades into subconsciousness; and beyond that we must postulate something indefinite but yet continuous with our mental nature It is difficult for the matter-of-fact physicist to accept the view that the substratum of everything is of mental character.

But no one can deny that mind is the first and most direct thing in our experience, and all else is remote inference. Ian Barbour in his book Issues in Science and Religion , p.

Sir James Jeans wrote: "The stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.

Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter Jeans, in an interview published in The Observer London , when asked the question: "Do you believe that life on this planet is the result of some sort of accident, or do you believe that it is a part of some great scheme?

I incline to the idealistic theory that consciousness is fundamental, and that the material universe is derivative from consciousness, not consciousness from the material universe In general the universe seems to me to be nearer to a great thought than to a great machine.

It may well be, it seems to me, that each individual consciousness ought to be compared to a brain-cell in a universal mind. Addressing the British Association in , Jeans said:.

What remains is in any case very different from the full-blooded matter and the forbidding materialism of the Victorian scientist. His objective and material universe is proved to consist of little more than constructs of our own minds.

To this extent, then, modern physics has moved in the direction of philosophic idealism. Mind and matter, if not proved to be of similar nature, are at least found to be ingredients of one single system.

There is no longer room for the kind of dualism which has haunted philosophy since the days of Descartes. Finite picture whose dimensions are a certain amount of space and a certain amount of time; the protons and electrons are the streaks of paint which define the picture against its space-time background.

Traveling as far back in time as we can, brings us not to the creation of the picture, but to its edge; the creation of the picture lies as much outside the picture as the artist is outside his canvas.

On this view, discussing the creation of the universe in terms of time and space is like trying to discover the artist and the action of painting, by going to the edge of the canvas.

This brings us very near to those philosophical systems which regard the universe as a thought in the mind of its Creator, thereby reducing all discussion of material creation to futility.

The chemist Ernest Lester Smith wrote a book Intelligence Came First in which he claimed that consciousness is a fact of nature and that the cosmos is grounded in and pervaded by mind and intelligence.

Bernard d'Espagnat , a French theoretical physicist best known for his work on the nature of reality, wrote a paper titled The Quantum Theory and Reality.

According to the paper:. The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment.

What quantum mechanics tells us, I believe, is surprising to say the least. It tells us that the basic components of objects — the particles, electrons, quarks etc.

He further writes that his research in quantum physics has led him to conclude that an "ultimate reality" exists, which is not embedded in space or time.

In ordinary language, as when speaking of Woodrow Wilson 's political idealism , it generally suggests the priority of ideals, principles, values, and goals over concrete realities.

Idealists are understood to represent the world as it might or should be, unlike pragmatists , who focus on the world as it presently is. In the arts, similarly, idealism affirms imagination and attempts to realize a mental conception of beauty, a standard of perfection, juxtaposed to aesthetic naturalism and realism.

Any philosophy that assigns crucial importance to the ideal or spiritual realm in its account of human existence may be termed "idealist".

Metaphysical idealism is an ontological doctrine that holds that reality itself is incorporeal or experiential at its core. Beyond this, idealists disagree on which aspects of the mental are more basic.

Platonic idealism affirms that abstractions are more basic to reality than the things we perceive, while subjective idealists and phenomenalists tend to privilege sensory experience over abstract reasoning.

Epistemological idealism is the view that reality can only be known through ideas, that only psychological experience can be apprehended by the mind.

Subjective idealists like George Berkeley are anti-realists in terms of a mind-independent world, whereas transcendental idealists like Immanuel Kant are strong skeptics of such a world, affirming epistemological and not metaphysical idealism.

Thus Kant defines idealism as "the assertion that we can never be certain whether all of our putative outer experience is not mere imagining".

On the contrary, however, the reality of the object of our internal sense of myself and state is clear immediately through consciousness".

Objective idealists make claims about a transempirical world, but simply deny that this world is essentially divorced from or ontologically prior to the mental.

Thus, Plato and Gottfried Leibniz affirm an objective and knowable reality transcending our subjective awareness—a rejection of epistemological idealism—but propose that this reality is grounded in ideal entities, a form of metaphysical idealism.

Nor do all metaphysical idealists agree on the nature of the ideal; for Plato, the fundamental entities were non-mental abstract forms , while for Leibniz they were proto-mental and concrete monads.

As a rule, transcendental idealists like Kant affirm idealism's epistemic side without committing themselves to whether reality is ultimately mental; objective idealists like Plato affirm reality's metaphysical basis in the mental or abstract without restricting their epistemology to ordinary experience; and subjective idealists like Berkeley affirm both metaphysical and epistemological idealism.

Idealism as a form of metaphysical monism holds that consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all being. It is monist because it holds that there is only one type of thing in the universe and idealist because it holds that one thing to be consciousness.

Anaxagoras BC taught that "all things" were created by Nous "Mind". He held that Mind held the cosmos together and gave human beings a connection to the cosmos or a pathway to the divine.

Plato 's theory of forms or "ideas" describes ideal forms for example the platonic solids in geometry or abstracts like Goodness and Justice , as universals existing independently of any particular instance.

Nevertheless, Plato holds that matter is real, though transitory and imperfect, and is perceived by our body and its senses and given existence by the eternal ideas that are perceived directly by our rational soul.

Plato was therefore a metaphysical and epistemological dualist , an outlook that modern idealism has striven to avoid: [24] Plato's thought cannot therefore be counted as idealist in the modern sense.

With the neoplatonist Plotinus , wrote Nathaniel Alfred Boll "there even appears, probably for the first time in Western philosophy , idealism that had long been current in the East even at that time, for it taught Protestant theologians have held idealist views, [29] often based on neoplatonism , despite the influence of Aristotelian scholasticism from the 12th century onward.

Later western theistic idealism such as that of Hermann Lotze offers a theory of the "world ground" in which all things find their unity: it has been widely accepted by Protestant theologians.

The theology of Christian Science includes a form of idealism: it teaches that all that truly exists is God and God's ideas; that the world as it appears to the senses is a distortion of the underlying spiritual reality, a distortion that may be corrected both conceptually and in terms of human experience through a reorientation spiritualization of thought.

Wang Yangming , a Ming Chinese neo-Confucian philosopher, official, educationist, calligraphist and general, held that objects do not exist entirely apart from the mind because the mind shapes them.

It is not the world that shapes the mind but the mind that gives reason to the world, so the mind alone is the source of all reason, having an inner light, an innate moral goodness and understanding of what is good.

Daoism Persons. Hundred Schools of Thought. Vedic philosophy. There are currents of idealism throughout Indian philosophy , ancient and modern.

Hindu idealism often takes the form of monism or non-dualism , espousing the view that a unitary consciousness is the essence or meaning of the phenomenal reality and plurality.

Buddhist idealism on the other hand is more epistemic and is not a metaphysical monism, which Buddhists consider eternalistic and hence not the middle way between extremes espoused by the Buddha.

This sukta espouses panentheism by presenting cosmic being Purusha as both pervading all universe and yet being transcendent to it.

Idealist notions have been propounded by the Vedanta schools of thought, which use the Vedas, especially the Upanishads as their key texts.

There are various sub schools of Vedanta, like Advaita Vedanta non-dual , Vishishtadvaita and Bhedabheda Vedanta difference and non-difference.

The schools of Vedanta all attempt to explain the nature and relationship of Brahman universal soul or Self and Atman individual self , which they see as the central topic of the Vedas.

Advaita Vedanta is a major sub school of Vedanta which holds a non-dual Idealistic metaphysics. The world and all beings or souls in it have no separate existence from Brahman, universal consciousness, and the seemingly independent soul jiva is identical to Brahman.

Dvaita school of Vedanta by Madhvacharya maintains the opposing view that the world is real and eternal. It also argues that real atman fully depends and reflection of independent brahman.

The Tantric tradition of Kashmir Shaivism has also been categorized by scholars as a form of Idealism. Sarkar , and Sohail Inayatullah.

Yogacara thought was also promoted in China by Chinese philosophers and translators like Xuanzang. There is a modern scholarly disagreement about whether Yogacara Buddhism can be said to be a form of idealism.

Vasubandhu 's works include a refutation of external objects or externality itself and argues that the true nature of reality is beyond subject-object distinctions.

Even the particular objects of perception, are by nature just consciousness itself. While some writers like Jay Garfield hold that Vasubandhu is a metaphysical idealist, others see him as closer to an epistemic idealist like Kant who holds that our knowledge of the world is simply knowledge of our own concepts and perceptions of a transcendental world.

What they do claim is that we mistake our projected interpretations of the world for the world itself, i. However he also notes key differences like the concepts of karma and nirvana.

Similarly, Thomas Kochumuttom sees Yogacara as "an explanation of experience, rather than a system of ontology" and Stefan Anacker sees Vasubandhu's philosophy as a form of psychology and as a mainly therapeutic enterprise.

Subjective idealism also known as immaterialism describes a relationship between experience and the world in which objects are no more than collections or bundles of sense data in the perceiver.

Proponents include Berkeley, [42] Bishop of Cloyne, an Anglo-Irish philosopher who advanced a theory he called " immaterialism ," later referred to as "subjective idealism", contending that individuals can only know sensations and ideas of objects directly, not abstractions such as "matter", and that ideas also depend upon being perceived for their very existence - esse est percipi ; "to be is to be perceived".

Arthur Collier [43] published similar assertions though there seems to have been no influence between the two contemporary writers.

The only knowable reality is the represented image of an external object. Matter as a cause of that image, is unthinkable and therefore nothing to us.

An external world as absolute matter unrelated to an observer does not exist as far as we are concerned. The universe cannot exist as it appears if there is no perceiving mind.

Bertrand Russell 's popular book The Problems of Philosophy highlights Berkeley's tautological premise for advancing idealism;. The Australian philosopher David Stove harshly criticized philosophical idealism, arguing that it rests on what he called "the worst argument in the world".

He argued that in Berkeley's case the fallacy is not obvious and this is because one premise is ambiguous between one meaning which is tautological and another which, Stove argues, is logically equivalent to the conclusion.

This argument does not take into account the issues pertaining to hermeneutics, especially at the backdrop of analytic philosophy.

Musgrave criticized Richard Rorty and postmodernist philosophy in general for confusion of use and mention. Luce [46] and John Foster are other subjectivists.

Foster's The Case for Idealism argues that the physical world is the logical creation of natural, non-logical constraints on human sense-experience.

Paul Brunton , a British philosopher, mystic, traveler, and guru, taught a type of idealism called " mentalism ," similar to that of Bishop Berkeley, proposing a master world-image, projected or manifested by a world-mind, and an infinite number of individual minds participating.

A tree does not cease to exist if nobody sees it because the world-mind is projecting the idea of the tree to all minds [48]. John Searle , criticizing some versions of idealism, summarizes two important arguments for subjective idealism.

The first is based on our perception of reality:. Whilst agreeing with 2 Searle argues that 1 is false and points out that 3 does not follow from 1 and 2.

The second argument runs as follows;. Epistemological idealism is a subjectivist position in epistemology that holds that what one knows about an object exists only in one's mind.

Proponents include Brand Blanshard. Transcendental idealism, founded by Immanuel Kant in the eighteenth century, maintains that the mind shapes the world we perceive into the form of space-and-time.

The 2nd edition contained a Refutation of Idealism to distinguish his transcendental idealism from Descartes 's Sceptical Idealism and Berkeley's anti-realist strain of Subjective Idealism.

The section Paralogisms of Pure Reason is an implicit critique of Descartes' idealism. Kant says that it is not possible to infer the 'I' as an object Descartes' cogito ergo sum purely from "the spontaneity of thought".

Kant focused on ideas drawn from British philosophers such as Locke , Berkeley and Hume but distinguished his transcendental or critical idealism from previous varieties;.

Kant distinguished between things as they appear to an observer and things in themselves, "that is, things considered without regard to whether and how they may be given to us".

He added that the mind is not a blank slate , tabula rasa but rather comes equipped with categories for organising our sense impressions.

He defined the ideal as being mental pictures that constitute subjective knowledge. The ideal, for him, is what can be attributed to our own minds.

The images in our head are what comprise the ideal. Schopenhauer emphasized that we are restricted to our own consciousness. The world that appears is only a representation or mental picture of objects.

We directly and immediately know only representations. All objects that are external to the mind are known indirectly through the mediation of our mind.

He offered a history of the concept of the "ideal" as "ideational" or "existing in the mind as an image". For nothing is more certain than that no one ever came out of himself in order to identify himself immediately with things different from him; but everything of which he has certain, sure, and therefore immediate knowledge, lies within his consciousness.

Beyond this consciousness, therefore, there can be no immediate certainty There can never be an existence that is objective absolutely and in itself; such an existence, indeed, is positively inconceivable.

For the objective, as such, always and essentially has its existence in the consciousness of a subject; it is therefore the subject's representation, and consequently is conditioned by the subject, and moreover by the subject's forms of representation, which belong to the subject and not to the object.

Charles Bernard Renouvier was the first Frenchman after Nicolas Malebranche to formulate a complete idealistic system, and had a vast influence on the development of French thought.

Friedrich Nietzsche argued that Kant commits an agnostic tautology and does not offer a satisfactory answer as to the source of a philosophical right to such-or-other metaphysical claims; he ridicules his pride in tackling "the most difficult thing that could ever be undertaken on behalf of metaphysics.

Objective idealism asserts that the reality of experiencing combines and transcends the realities of the object experienced and of the mind of the observer.

Schelling — claimed that the Fichte's "I" needs the Not-I, because there is no subject without object, and vice versa.

So there is no difference between the subjective and the objective, that is, the ideal and the real. This is Schelling's "absolute identity ": the ideas or mental images in the mind are identical to the extended objects which are external to the mind.

Absolute idealism is G. Hegel 's account of how existence is comprehensible as an all-inclusive whole. Hegel called his philosophy "absolute" idealism in contrast to the "subjective idealism" of Berkeley and the "transcendental idealism" of Kant and Fichte, [57] which were not based on a critique of the finite and a dialectical philosophy of history as Hegel's idealism was.

The exercise of reason and intellect enables the philosopher to know ultimate historical reality, the phenomenological constitution of self-determination, the dialectical development of self-awareness and personality in the realm of History.

In his Science of Logic — Hegel argues that finite qualities are not fully "real" because they depend on other finite qualities to determine them.

Qualitative infinity , on the other hand, would be more self-determining and hence more fully real. Similarly finite natural things are less "real"—because they are less self-determining—than spiritual things like morally responsible people, ethical communities and God.

So any doctrine, such as materialism, that asserts that finite qualities or natural objects are fully real is mistaken.

Hegel certainly intends to preserve what he takes to be true of German idealism, in particular Kant's insistence that ethical reason can and does go beyond finite inclinations.

Under Hegel's concept of "subject-object identity," subject and object both have Spirit Hegel's ersatz, redefined, nonsupernatural "God" as their conceptual not metaphysical inner reality—and in that sense are identical.

But until Spirit's "self-realization" occurs and Spirit graduates from Spirit to Absolute Spirit status, subject a human mind mistakenly thinks every "object" it observes is something "alien," meaning something separate or apart from "subject.

When self-realization occurs and Spirit becomes Absolute Spirit, the "finite" man, human becomes the "infinite" "God," divine , replacing the imaginary or "picture-thinking" supernatural God of theism : man becomes God.

Kierkegaard criticized Hegel's idealist philosophy in several of his works, particularly his claim to a comprehensive system that could explain the whole of reality.

Where Hegel argues that an ultimate understanding of the logical structure of the world is an understanding of the logical structure of God 's mind, Kierkegaard asserts that for God reality can be a system but it cannot be so for any human individual because both reality and humans are incomplete and all philosophical systems imply completeness.

For Hegel, a logical system is possible but an existential system is not: "What is rational is actual; and what is actual is rational".

So-called systems have often been characterized and challenged in the assertion that they abrogate the distinction between good and evil, and destroy freedom.

Perhaps one would express oneself quite as definitely, if one said that every such system fantastically dissipates the concept existence.

Being an individual man is a thing that has been abolished, and every speculative philosopher confuses himself with humanity at large; whereby he becomes something infinitely great, and at the same time nothing at all.

A major concern of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit and of the philosophy of Spirit that he lays out in his Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences — is the interrelation between individual humans, which he conceives in terms of "mutual recognition.

Individual human will ought, at the State's highest level of development, to properly coincide with the will of the State. Climacus rejects Hegel's suppression of individuality by pointing out it is impossible to create a valid set of rules or system in any society which can adequately describe existence for any one individual.

Submitting one's will to the State denies personal freedom, choice, and responsibility. In addition, Hegel does believe we can know the structure of God's mind, or ultimate reality.

Hegel agrees with Kierkegaard that both reality and humans are incomplete, inasmuch as we are in time, and reality develops through time.

But the relation between time and eternity is outside time and this is the "logical structure" that Hegel thinks we can know. Kierkegaard disputes this assertion, because it eliminates the clear distinction between ontology and epistemology.

Existence and thought are not identical and one cannot possibly think existence. Thought is always a form of abstraction, and thus not only is pure existence impossible to think, but all forms in existence are unthinkable; thought depends on language, which merely abstracts from experience, thus separating us from lived experience and the living essence of all beings.

In addition, because we are finite beings, we cannot possibly know or understand anything that is universal or infinite such as God, so we cannot know God exists, since that which transcends time simultaneously transcends human understanding.

Bradley saw reality as a monistic whole apprehended through "feeling", a state in which there is no distinction between the perception and the thing perceived.

Like Berkeley, Bradley thought that nothing can be known to exist unless it is known by a mind. We perceive, on reflection, that to be real, or even barely to exist, must be to fall within sentience Find any piece of existence, take up anything that any one could possibly call a fact, or could in any sense assert to have being, and then judge if it does not consist in sentient experience.

Try to discover any sense in which you can still continue to speak of it, when all perception and feeling have been removed; or point out any fragment of its matter, any aspect of its being, which is not derived from and is not still relative to this source.

When the experiment is made strictly, I can myself conceive of nothing else than the experienced. Bradley was the apparent target of G.

Moore 's radical rejection of idealism. Moore claimed that Bradley did not understand the statement that something is real. We know for certain, through common sense and prephilosophical beliefs, that some things are real, whether they are objects of thought or not, according to Moore.

The article The Refutation of Idealism is one of the first demonstrations of Moore's commitment to analysis. He examines each of the three terms in the Berkeleian aphorism esse est percipi , "to be is to be perceived", finding that it must mean that the object and the subject are necessarily connected so that "yellow" and "the sensation of yellow" are identical - "to be yellow" is "to be experienced as yellow".

But it also seems there is a difference between "yellow" and "the sensation of yellow" and "that esse is held to be percipi , solely because what is experienced is held to be identical with the experience of it".

Though far from a complete refutation, this was the first strong statement by analytic philosophy against its idealist predecessors, or at any rate against the type of idealism represented by Berkeley.

Actual idealism is a form of idealism developed by Giovanni Gentile that grew into a "grounded" idealism contrasting Kant and Hegel. The idea is a version of Occam's razor; the simpler explanations are always correct.

Actual idealism is the idea that reality is the ongoing act of thinking, or in Italian "pensiero pensante". He further believes that thoughts are the only concept that truly exist since reality is defined through the act of thinking.

Since thoughts are actions, any conjectured idea can be enacted. This idea not only affects the individual's life, but everyone around them, which in turn affects the state since the people are the state.

The state is a composition of many minds that come together to change the country for better or worse.

Gentile theorizes that thoughts can only be conjectured within the bounds of known reality; abstract thinking does not exist. With accordance to "The Act of Thought of Pure Thought", our actions comprise our thoughts, our thoughts create perception, perceptions define reality, thus we think within our created reality.

The present act of thought is reality but the past is not reality; it is history. The reason being, past can be rewritten through present knowledge and perspective of the event.

The reality that is currently constructed can be completely changed through language e. Actual idealism is regarded as a liberal and tolerant doctrine since it acknowledges that every being picturizes reality, in which their ideas remained hatched, differently.

Even though, reality is a figment of thought. Even though core concept of the theory is famous for its simplification, its application is regarded as extremely ambiguous.

Over the years, philosophers have interpreted it numerously different ways: [68] Holmes took it as metaphysics of the thinking act; Betti as a form of hermeneutics; Harris as a metaphysics of democracy; Fogu as a modernist philosophy of history.

Giovanni Gentile was a key supporter of fascism, regarded by many as the "philosopher of fascism". Gentile's philosophy was the key to understating fascism as it was believed by many who supported and loved it.

They believed, if priori synthesis of subject and object is true, there is no difference between the individuals in society; they're all one.

Which means that they have equal right, roles, and jobs. In fascist state, submission is given to one leader because individuals act as one body.

In Gentile's view, far more can be accomplished when individuals are under a corporate body than a collection of autonomous individuals.

Pluralistic idealism such as that of Gottfried Leibniz [69] [70] takes the view that there are many individual minds that together underlie the existence of the observed world and make possible the existence of the physical universe.

Leibniz' form of idealism, known as Panpsychism , views "monads" as the true atoms of the universe and as entities having perception.

The monads are "substantial forms of being, "elemental, individual, subject to their own laws, non-interacting, each reflecting the entire universe.

Monads are centers of force, which is substance while space, matter and motion are phenomenal and their form and existence is dependent on the simple and immaterial monads.

There is a pre-established harmony by God , the central monad, between the world in the minds of the monads and the external world of objects.

Leibniz's cosmology embraced traditional Christian theism. The English psychologist and philosopher James Ward inspired by Leibniz had also defended a form of pluralistic idealism.

Personalism is the view that the minds that underlie reality are the minds of persons. Borden Parker Bowne , a philosopher at Boston University, a founder and popularizer of personal idealism, presented it as a substantive reality of persons, the only reality, as known directly in self-consciousness.

Reality is a society of interacting persons dependent on the Supreme Person of God. Idealism , in philosophy , any view that stresses the central role of the ideal or the spiritual in the interpretation of experience.

It may hold that the world or reality exists essentially as spirit or consciousness , that abstractions and laws are more fundamental in reality than sensory things, or, at least, that whatever exists is known in dimensions that are chiefly mental—through and as ideas.

Thus, the two basic forms of idealism are metaphysical idealism, which asserts the ideality of reality, and epistemological idealism, which holds that in the knowledge process the mind can grasp only the psychic or that its objects are conditioned by their perceptibility.

In its metaphysics , idealism is thus directly opposed to materialism —the view that the basic substance of the world is matter and that it is known primarily through and as material forms and processes.

In its epistemology , it is opposed to realism , which holds that in human knowledge objects are grasped and seen as they really are—in their existence outside and independently of the mind.

As a philosophy often expressed in bold and expansive syntheses, idealism is also opposed to various restrictive forms of thought: to skepticism , with occasional exceptions, as in the work of the British Hegelian F.
