Idealism

The doctrines taught by Idealists.

Subjective idealism,
taught by Fechte (2 syl.), supposes the object (say a tree) and the image of it on the mind is all ore. Or rather, that there is no object outside the mental idea.

Objective idealism,
taught by Schelling, supposes thatthe tree and the image thereof on the mind are distinct from each other.

Absolute idealism,
taught by Hegel, supposes there is no such thing as phonomers, that mind, through the senses, creates its own world. In fact, that there is no real, but all is mere ideal.

These are three German philosophers:

Hegel (1770-1831).

Schelling (1770-1854).

Fechte (1762-1814).
