Not one of the early modern philosophers doubted that there is a physical world or denied that natural science gives us knowledge of that world. The real question that ties together the early modern period is what gives scientific knowledge its special character and its special authority for us. Idealism in Kant (and Hegel) is meant to offer not a new account of physical objects but a new account of authority, one that can explain the claims of both scientific knowledge and morality. What makes German idealism distinctive and important is that it seeks to offer an account of authority that depends only on human beings and their own rationality, and not on an independent appeal to God or even to nature.

We are thus supposed to trust that God has created us well. 6 What Descartes really needs is not for us to trust in the divine authority of the concept of extension, but for us to be able to see that authority in the concept itself. In Descartes’ rationalist successors, this defect is made good: both Leibniz and Spinoza believe that the proper starting point of deductive science is not simply an abstract set of physical ideas but the idea of God itself. But that way of proceeding either smuggles teleological premises back into modern physical science (which was exactly Leibniz’s goal) or preserves mechanism by altering the traditional concept of God into something less than an all-good, all-powerful authority 6 See the Sixth Meditation.
