Idealism is a philosophical concept that places importance on the mental and spiritual aspects in interpretation of our experiences and our environment. Idealists believe that ideas are what construct our reality and that things do not exist outside of the mental realm. The world and our reality are mentally constructed and intangible. Human ideas and concepts (such as morals and beliefs) are what ultimately shape our society and these non-physical components are what make up our perception of reality.
