In his interpretation of Schleiermacher’s theory of religion, Feuerbach works with an inadequate concept of feeling. Nevertheless it should be recognized that in he displays an excellent understanding of Schleiermacher’s theory. This understanding is most likely founded on a thorough reading of the relevant passages in (1st ed. §§8-11). Feuerbach goes along with Schleiermacher’s objections to the idealistic criticism of anthropomorphisms. Furthermore he accepts Schleiermacher’s challenge to those denying that God can be immediately perceived in feeling in his attempt to show that the highest being is given in reality in man as a species.
