Feuerbach resolves the religious essence into the human essence.

But the human essence is not an abstraction inherent in each single individual.

Feuerbach starts out from the fact of religious self-alienation and the duplication of the world into an imagined religious world and a real world.

His work consists in resolving the religious world into its secular basis.

To abstract from the historical process and to fix the religious sentiment as something by itself and to presuppose an abstract – isolated – human individual; 2.

For this reason, he can consider the human essence only as a “genus”, as an internal, mute generality which naturally unites the multiplicity of individuals.

The highest point reached by intuitive materialism - that is, materialism which does not comprehend the activity of the senses as practical activity - is the point-of-view of single individuals in “bourgeois society”.

The "Theses on Feuerbach" are eleven short philosophical notes written by Karl Marx as a basic outline for the first chapter of the book The German Ideology in 1845.

Marx began work upon a book detailing his new philosophy of history, entitled The German Ideology.

In connection with this project, Marx wrote a terse 11-point set of observations and epigrams regarding the ideas of Ludwig Feuerbach, a fellow Young Hegelian philosopher regarded by him as the most modern exponent of materialism, albeit one whom Marx believed had failed to draw fully satisfactory political conclusions from his philosophical insights.
