Deism as a substitute to revealed religion started as a strictly intellectualist system. Its aim was to banish superstition, miracles, and secrets from religion and to expose religion to the light of reason. The philosophic meaning of deism consists primarily in that it maintains a new principle in the formulation of its problem. It found its justification in the basic and principles of Locke's theory of knowledge, and Bacon's new method based on induction rather than deduction, and the triumph of Newton's science based on analysis and mathematics. Kant at last tried to find a compromise between faith and reason.
