An den Brockhaus-Verlag bei Übersendung des Manuskripts zu "Paul Johann Anselm Ritter von Feuerbachs Leben und Wirken veröffentlicht von seinem Sohne Ludwig Feuerbach", zu dem nur noch zwei Stücke fehlten, darunter das "der Königin Caroline [...] überreichte Memoire über K. Hauser, worin F. mit seinem bekannten juristischen Scharfsinn es wahrscheinlich [...] macht, daß K. H. allerdings der sei, wofür ihn die bekannte Fama publica, namentlich in Baden, ausgegeben hat [...] Ich selbst habe an diesem Memoire dieses, aber auch nur dieses auszusetzen, daß selbst einige (frühere) Träume K.

H.s zu den Indicien gezählt werden, doch dieß ist [...] gleichgültig: das Memoire gehört nothwendig zum Ganzen u. ist vielleicht in den Augen des allgemeinen Publicums das Allerwichtigste in der ganzen Sammlung [... ]." - Unveröffentlicht..

To the publishing house of Brockhaus, accompanying the manuscript of ‘Paul Johann Anselm Ritter von Feuerbach’s live and work, published by his son Ludwig Feuerbach’, of which only two parts were missing, one of them “the document presented to Queen Caroline […] concerning K. Hauser, in which F. finds probable cause that K.H. really is the one the rumor, namely in Baden, sais he is. […] Personally, I see only one fault in the document: the fact that even some of K.H.’s dreams are taken as evidence, but that is of no importance: this document is an essential part and may well be the most important piece of all in the collection […].” – Unpublished. Feuerbach exercised an important influence over Karl Marx. Not only did Marx adopt his criticism of religion (while radicalizing it) but most importantly his anthropological materialism. Unlike Feuerbach, however, Marx rated politics higher than nature. His aim is “the alliance with politics” in order to “change the world”. Today, Feuerbach’s anthropological materialism and Marx’s historical materialism are both considered equal positions in the history of thought.

Autograph manuscript, in German, on "Natural Science and the Revolution": the strongly revised setting copy of his essay about the effects of scientific progress on philosophy and politics, inspired by Jacob Moleschott's book "Lehre der Nahrungsmittel. Für das Volk" ("Doctrine of Food. For the People", 1850). - Some dust- and gluestaining; a few insignificant edge defects. With editorial notes (in red ink and crayon) for publication in the "Blätter für literarische Unterhaltung" (nos. 268-271, 8-12 Dec. 1850), of which a copy is included. - Feuerbach's philosophy had an enormous and direct impact on that of Karl Marx, who not only wholeheartedly accepted his criticism of religion (which he radicalised politically), but also, particularly, his anthropological materialism. "Das Kapital" has its foundation in Feuerbach's "theoretical revolution" which views material reality as the primary truth and thus sets idealist philosophy "on its feet". Ultimately, Marx was to arrive at different conclusions than the much-admired Feuerbach: while the latter saw anthropology as the only viable scientific conclusion, the practical consequence for Marx was criticism of the economy and to overthrow the social conditions.
