    Their characteristic is that of being based on necessary and universal principles, a priori, and thus principles not derived from experience. In this framework, the idealism of Fichte is called "subjective idealism", because the Self is the fundamental principle of all knowledge, and "ethical idealism", because the first activity of the Self imposes on every individual the fulfilment of an obligation, that is, conquering one's own freedom cf. In fact, it places all physics into one single geometric outline, of Spinozan inspiration. The concept of immanence is directly opposed to that of transcendence. Even if defined by some as an idealist because of his recovery of Descartes', and in part, of Kant's philosophy, Husserl goes beyond realism and idealism. That, for instance, 'the human mind should possess the power of comprehending its own natural origins, of ranging in thought over.

    For him, "concepts are formed from our experience, and our experience is shaped by the world" p. A rational basis can therefore be given to faith, Idealism and the Modern Age book it take the form of a connection between the "trascendentality" and the "historicity" of the human being; between an athematic knowledge, through which the subject recognizes itself as the place of the revelation-communication of God, and an awareness of a categorical kind, through which he or she understands how such a revelation-communication has effectively arisen in the history of salvation. It is interesting to observe how the return to Platonic idealism, on the part of some mathematicians and physicists, begins with the demand for a recovery of objectivity against the subjectivism of modern idealism, and is based on a realistic statement the "exaggerated" realism of Plato that attributes an extramental existence to ideas in opposition to the subjectivist idealism that denies the reality of being as such outside of the subject and thought. Imperfections could be in the form of blurred text, photographs, or missing pages. They coin new concepts and reveal an image of God that, though satisfying the demands of reason, in fact surpasses its horizon.

    If for Kant the "Self," the subject, creates the knowing, for the subsequent German idealism the subject creates being. For example, there will always be various cosmological models compatible with the same set of observed data, keeping open the choice on which among these, within great families of parametric solutions, is the most correct one. In this period we find, on the one hand, a world of experience that is considerably valued, thanks to physical-mathematical science, which after Galileo and Newton had grounded its epistemological autonomy on experience ; on the other hand, thought is interpreted as "intuition", a thought that looks within itself for the certainty of its truth, a vision that will have its foremost defender in Descartes. German Idealism and its Influence on Contemporary Thought 1. The anthropological and the cosmological path are two sides to the same ascent.

Idealism, German:

Very high speeds such as that of light, that come into play in the theory of special relativity, enormous dimensions and times, that come from the cosmology of general relativity, extremely small dimensions in microphysics governed by quantum mechanics, are all things far removed from our daily experiences.

The anthropological and the cosmological path are two sides to the same ascent. In the philosophical thought of G.

To lead one's life at mercy of anguish and fear is unbearable for the human being and, therefore, through a "flight from the real world", he or she finds refuge in God's omnipotence.
