Epicurus Adorno
 
Books on Amazon
Adorno XIII 209
Epicurus/Adorno: the tradition is quite problematic and incomplete. We only have a fully developed epicurean doctrine in the poem of Lucrez "De rerum natura", which originates from the late republican Roman times. ---
XIII 210
VsEpicurus/VsMaterialism/Adorno: also Epicurus has not escaped the accusation against all materialists, to be puritan, ascetic. The theory of the epicurus was averse to the radical picture of hedonism, for instance, as in Aristippus, who described the immediate and here to obtained pleasure as the only thing worth living for, and yet, despite its moderate consequences, and often with the Stoa itself touching ethics of heresy it is forfeited as hedonistic.

Ethics Epicurus

Adorno XIII 224
Ethics/Epicurus/Adorno: the Epicurean materialism is designed essentially in regard to ethics. His ethics are hedonistic, i.e. the supreme good, the summum bonum is the pleasure to him, the unconditional evil is the pain to him. His justification is, in turn, a late common property of late antiquity. He shares it with the Stoa. Finally, its points back to cynicism, namely with the observation that the children strive for pleasure and avoid displeasure. ---
Adorno XIII 226
Ataraxy/Ethics/Epicurus/Adorno: Ataraxy is the epicurean ideal of the middle. In the ataraxy the Stoics are mocked. (EpicurusVsStoa, EpicurusVsStoicism). Ethics/Antiquity/Adorno: In ethics, the difference between the schools that are usually similiar to each other, was marked the most.
---
XIII 227
Ethics/Epicurus/Adorno: the nature-ruling thinking does not simply enter from the outside, but at the moment when one begins to think about pleasure and the possibility of pleasure at all, one is necessarily driven into this dialectic. In the Epicurean philosophy this means no less than that the pleasure is subordinated to the mind. ---
XIII 228
Recognition/Epicurus: the highest good - similar to his metaphysical antipodes Plato and Aristotle - is insight. Infinite/Epicurus/Ethics/Adorno: the idea of the infinite, which is the central one for German speculation, is simply lacking in Greek ethics.
---
XIII 230
Ethics/Epicurus/Adorno: his most famous principle to withdraw into privacy: "Live as a hidden being" or "remain hidden as a living being"
arose after the thought of the change in the state system became invalid.
---
XIII 231
Ethics/Lukàcs/Adorno: Lukàcs has called this private ethics. ---
XIII 235
AdornoVsEpicurus: the pleasure principle is derived from nature in Epicurus. The concept of universality derived from this, however, turns into the exact opposite of what it was supposed to be, according to that norm of self-existence, which is self-sufficient in itself. It becomes the privilege of the few who can afford to live in secret. Such a group has addressed Stendhal in a famous statement as the happy few. (Footnote XIII 323, Adorno refers to motto to Stendhal's novel Lucien Leuwen cited by Lord Byron).
AdornoVsEpicurus: at the same time, the seclusion also makes the individual himself perish.

Adorno XIII 236
Individual/Hegel/Goethe/VsEpicurus/Adorno: there is no development of the I by the fact that the I cares for itself like a plant, and waters itself with water, but only by what Hegel and Goethe have described as a externalization. This does not mean, for example, that one abandons oneself in adaptation and makes onself equal to the world. Rather, one must expose that what one is oneself, the randomness of the suchness of one's own existence, the dialectic, with the non-ego. Person/Hegel/Adorno: the person is, at the same time, the one of the world that one encounters, and it is formed only in the experience of this world. > Individual/Schopenhauer.

Adorno XIII 231
Individual/Epicurus/Adorno: the individual who is supposed to live "in secret" according to Epicurus would have been called by Hegel an abstract individual, a purely for-itself being, without any relation to social, economic, or even psychological objectivity. (HegelVsEpicurus). Ethics/Hegel/Adorno: for Hegel the norm of a real life was to become a citizen of a good state.

Picture Theory Epicurus

Adorno XIII 213
Picture theory/image theory/recognize/sensations/Epicurus/Adorno: image theory is a theory that Epicurus bases on its > aporetic terms. It has been of extraordinary and disastrous effect. Thesis: The matter made up of atoms, fundamentally according to Democritus, emits tiny pictues, which affect us or are even identical with our sensations. ---
XIII 214
Aporetic terms/Adorno: aporetic terms prepare new aporias here. AdornoVsEpicurus: Thus, to bring together his two theorems, Epicurus is compelled to a metaphysical settlement, which cannot be combined with the denial of metaphysics by his materialism.
