1. The material ugliness of philosophical idealists’ society makes its members turn inward as a way of finding their spirituality and emotional solace.
2. As a result of the above inwards turn, the typical philosophical idealist is deprived of actual and integral life experience.
3. As a result of this deprivation of actual life experience, the philosophical idealists’ notion of knowledge becomes categorically determined. In other words, as a bureaucratically minded person, if I can put something in its correct category, then I can also presume to know it.
4. The philosophical idealists’ position in relation to knowledge is “transcendent” in the sense that the subject who categorises in order to know does not actually engage integrally with the one that they are categorising.
5. The philosophical idealists’ position in relation to knowledge is actually a posture in relation to assumed knowledge, which is not knowledge at all except in concept. The philosophical idealists’ “knowledge” is generally lacking in the substance of lived experience.
6. Those who adopt a position of philosophical idealists’ “knowing” will presume that they have the ultimate perspective — having categorised everything — but those who base their knowledge on experience will perceive the philosophical idealists’ perspective to be devoid of insight as well as being devoid of any quality of genuine knowledge.
