On Materialism and Idealism

(Über Materialismus und Idealismus)

On Materialism and Idealism was first published by Adam Weishaupt in 1786, and has long been considered to be one of his philosophical works. After the publication of the Secret School of Wisdom, the Authentic Ritual and Doctrines of the Illuminati, it has been discovered, to in fact be the completion of the Docetist degree of the Illuminati. This degree was the second highest degree in the ritual system of the Illuminati, and contemplates the existence of God and the immortality of the soul through logical secular reasoning. Explore the refined and completed philosophical treatise originally intended to be read by a select few within the inner circle of the Order.
