|Danto III 185
Drive/Instincts/Reality/Nietzsche/Danto: Nothing else is 'given' as real than our world of desires and passions. We cannot go down or up to any other 'reality' than the reality of our instincts/drives. (F. Nietzsche: Jenseits von Gut und Böse, KGW VI. 2, p. 50).
Nietzsche/Danto: Nietzsche makes two further assumptions:
1. that each individual owns more or less the same ensemble of instincts/drives, but that the instincts/drives vary in intensity for each individual.
2. that nothing can be done to strengthen or weaken these affects - unless you kill or mutilate someone else. We must understand this as a kind of preservation law._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
