Process/Nietzsche/Danto: according to Nietzsche's 'Moral of the Method' (Danto's expression for this is 'Methodical Monism'), we have to understand all processes as if they were made of one piece, ourselves and everything we differ from ourselves, should be considered as if they were from the same rank of reality - whereby 'matter' would then be understood as a primitive form of the world of emotions, in which everything is still decided in a mmighty unity which then branches off and transformes during the organic process (F. Nietzsche: Jenseits von Gut und Böse, KGW VI. 2, p. 50f).
The physical world would then be a "preform of life". (ibid. p. 51.)
Danto: It is important to remember that Nietzsche categorized all of this merely as a hypothesis, as an 'experiment', which he could not refuse. See Method/Nietzsche, See Power/Nietzsche._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
