|Danto III 229
Natural state/Hobbes/Danto: According to Hobbes, there was no sign of civilization in the natural state and the history (story) of bare life should be a monotonous repetition of beating and rape: If there has been a history in itself, then it is thanks to religion, and according to Nietzsche it is also due to the mind, which was created by the powerless (Danto: the priests). (F. Nietzsche: Jenseits von Gut und Böse, VI. 2, p. 281).
Sense/Life/Nietzsche/Danto: From here, the meaning of religion can only be properly estimated: The human being, the animal human being, has so far had no sense. His existence on earth had no purpose; he did not know how to justify himself, to explain, to affirm.
