Man must prove the truth — i. He overlooks the fact that after completing this work, the chief thing still remains to be done. For Marx human is totality of social relations but human is not such berar of social structures.
If we enlighten people out of religion then world will be saved. The latter must itself be understood in its contradiction and then, by the removal of the contradiction, revolutionised.
All mysteries which lead theory to mysticism find their rational solution in human practice and in the comprehension of this practice.
III The materialist doctrine concerning the changing of circumstances and upbringing forgets that circumstances are changed by men and that it is essential to educate the educator himself. Hence he does not grasp the significance of "revolutionary", of "practical-critical", activity.
But that the secular basis detaches itself from itself and establishes itself as an independent realm in the clouds can only be explained by the cleavages and self-contradictions within this secular basis. This doctrine must, therefore, divide society into two parts, one of which is superior to society.
Hence, in contradistinction to materialism, the active side was developed abstractly by idealism — which, of course, does not know real, sensuous activity as such.
Thus, for instance, once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the holy family, the former must then itself be destroyed in theory and in practice. But the human essence is no abstraction inherent in each single individual.
VIII All social life is essentially practical. Hence this doctrine is bound to divide society into two parts, one of which is superior to society. Feuerbach wants sensuous objects, really distinct from the thought objects, but he does not conceive human activity itself as objective activity.
The dispute over the reality or non-reality of thinking which is isolated from practice is a purely scholastic question. World view as a whole is true if it can bring about a just and working society. V Feuerbach, not satisfied with abstract thinking, wants contemplation; but he does not conceive sensuousness as practical, human-sensuous activity.
II The question whether objective truth can be attributed to human thinking is not a question of theory but is a practical question. Marx considers religion totally social phenomena where religious consciousness is socially produced.
The latter must itself be understood in its contradiction and then, by the removal of the contradiction, revolutionised. IX The highest point reached by contemplative materialism, that is, materialism which does not comprehend sensuousness as practical activity, is contemplation of single individuals and of civil society.
XI Thesis on Feurebach Source: X The standpoint of the old materialism is civil society; the standpoint of the new is human society, or social humanity. There was religion in so called original communism. VI Feuerbach resolves the religious essence into the human essence.
In The Essence of Christianity [Das Wesen des Christenthums], he therefore regards the theoretical attitude as the only genuinely human attitude, while practice [Praxis] is conceived and defined only in its dirty-Jewish form of appearance [Erscheinungsform] .
Feuerbach, who does not enter upon a criticism of this real essence, is consequently compelled: Man must prove the truth — i. I The chief defect of all hitherto existing materialism — that of Feuerbach included — is that the thing, reality, sensuousness, is conceived only in the form of the object or of contemplation, but not as sensuous human activity, practice, not subjectively.
Marx never supported correspondence theory of truth but possible he did support materialistic version Hegelian realism - abstract concepts like capital, product, price etc. Eleven Theses on Feuerbach by Karl Marx ratings, average rating, 13 reviews Eleven Theses on Feuerbach Quotes (showing of 7) “The philosophers have only interpreted the.
