 Idæ’an Mother.Ide’alists. 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
The doctrines taught by Idealists.   1
   Subjective idealism, taught by Fechte (2 syl.), supposes the object (say a tree) and the image of it on the mind is all one. Or rather, that there is no object outside the mental idea.   2
   Objective idealism, taught by Schelling, supposes that the tree and the image thereof on the mind are distinct from each other.   3
   Absolute idealism, taught by Hegel, supposes there is no such thing as phenomena; that mind, through the senses, creates its own world. In fact, that there is no real, but all is mere ideal.   4
These are three German philosophers:
Hegel (1770–1831).
Schelling (1770–1854).
Fechte (1762–1814).
