Ludwig Feuerbach


Ludwig Feuerbach Quotes

  • ''If therefore my work is negative, irreligious, atheistic, let it be remembered that atheism—at least in the sense of this work—is the secret of religion itself; that religion itself, not indeed on the surface, but fundamentally, not in intention or according to its own supposition, but in its heart, in its essence, believes in nothing else than the truth and divinity of human nature.''
    Ludwig Feuerbach (1804-1872), German philosopher. The Essence of Christianity, preface (1841).

  • ''The present age ... prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, fancy to reality, the appearance to the essence ... for in these days illusion only is sacred, truth profane.''
    Ludwig Feuerbach (1804-1872), German philosopher. The Essence of Christianity, preface to 1843 edition (1841).
  • ''Religion is the dream of the human mind. But even in dreams we do not find ourselves in emptiness or in heaven, but on earth, in the realm of reality; we only see real things in the entrancing splendor of imagination and caprice, instead of in the simple daylight of reality and necessity.''
    Ludwig Feuerbach (1804-1872), German philosopher. The Essence of Christianity, preface to 1843 edition (1841).
