Adorno XIII 249
Naturalism/Hobbes/Adorno: Hobbes differs from the materialism of the Epicurus and his doctrine of human friendship and the so-called real humanism as proclaimed by Marx. Here, we have to look at the concept of Hobbes' naturalism: the thesis that everything that is at all, is essentially a natural being.
That is, that there is no supernatural being, at least not as an object of knowledge, at all. He represents a doctrine of the two truths, the natural and the supernatural truth.
The idea of ruling nature is extended by Hobbes also to the inner-human nature.
He equates human nature with the animal world, as becomes clear in his famous parable, that a human is like wolf to another human, homo homini lupus.
