Bubner I 194
Language/Hobbes/Bubner: language belongs, on its part, to the arbitrary inventions of civilization, with which the human frees himself from pre-legal existence.
If language is not a gift of nature, the question arises as to its utility.
Hobbes: threefold utilitas:
1. Counting, measuring.
2. People can teach each other linguistically.
3. Give commands and understand commands. Without these, there would be no community and no peace.
The welfare of the Leviathan is identical with the continuity of the legal system. This is, because of the contract, also never controversial. Not even the sovereign can question it.
