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 – Unpublished.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.
