Religious Belief Adorno XIII 222
Religious Belief/Epicurus/Adorno: Epicurus gives the reason that the universality of their assumption speaks for the existence of God. The reduction of the objective concept of truth to subjective opinion in this already neutralized, compliant, late-Greek consciousness forces Epicurus to join the general ruling more or less in a conformist way.
EpicurusVsPlato/Adorno: if there is no longer an objective concept of reason - as the Platonic has prototypically shaped it - the average value of belief is very easily hypostatized instead.
This is found in the Hobbesian form of materialism, in which religion is recommended as a state-preserving means, that is, as a for-another, and not as an in-itself.
