Adorno XIII 200
Atoms/Democritus/Adorno: Democritus Thesis: there are infinitely many atoms, which should be different in their form. VsDemocritus: Criticism has been exercised in the history of science that it is difficult to conceive that the infinitely small, which is already designed in the direction of a quantification process, should nevertheless retain such differences of form.

Adorno XIII 213
Atoms/Democritus/Epicurus/Adorno: for both, atoms were not mathematical points, but something tangible and real.

Atoms Epicurus

Adorno XIII 201
Atoms/Epicurus/Adorno: EpicurusVsDemocritus: the idea of the qualitative difference of the forms cannot be maintained. Marx also addressed this in his dissertation. ---
Adorno XIII 213
Atoms/Democritus/Epicurus/Adorno: for both, atoms were not mathematical points, but something tangible and real. ---
Adorno XIII 218
Atoms/EpicurusVsDemocritus/Adorno: the difference to Democritus consists in the fact that Epicurus' atomic concept is also unified by him opposed to the external form of the atoms, that actually all atoms are, in a strict sense, equal to each other. A progressive quantification process is making itself (...) avail.

Dissimilarity Democritus
 
Books on Amazon
Adorno XIII 202
Dissimilarity/Democritus/Adorno: How is the dissimilarity in things created? The problem of all ancient philosophy was to state a unified principle, from which everything could be explained, and with which one could react against the infinite variety of natural mythology. ---
XIII 203
Atoms/Democritus/Adorno: atoms do not have internal states, but only mechanical states. This notion that the essence of things can only be grasped from the outside and not from the inside, and that there is in fact no inner being, had a tremendous consequence for the entire history of the sciences. ---
XIII 204
AristotleVsDemocritus/Adorno: Thesis: the objectivity and reality of forms is immanent to the things themselves. Natural science: modern science has criticized this Aristotelian and medieval view, and has no longer attempted to comprehend the matter from within, from these forms. One has simply observed and registered from the outside.
This is VsKant, VsLeibniz, VsWolff.
Group: Leibniz, Wolff pro Aristotle.

Existence Democritus
 
Books on Amazon
Adorno XIII 192
Existence/Democritus/Adorno: first principle: nothing ventured, nothing gained and nothing what is, can be destroyed. Kant/Adorno: in the system of the principles of Kant, in the first analogy of experience one finds precisely this principle of Democritus.
---
XIII 193
Democritus goes extraordinarily nominalistically from the individual to the whole, in that, as the true being, the parts are viewed as opposed to the whole that is composed of it. Unity/Materialism/Adorno: It can be said that wherever the thought of matter is at the center of a philosophical conception, the participle is made substantial, because the unity moment is always mind, reflection.
---
XIII 194
Then the wholeness or the totality of its existence appears as a mere appearance. ---
Adorno XIII 198
Existence/Democritus/Adorno: 3. Principle: That nothing exists at all except the atoms and the empty space. Everything else is mere opinion, that is, is appearance, doxa. Appearance/Democritus/Materialism/Adorno: In this concept of appearance, which is criticized, the democritical materialism is not only connected with Plato, but also with the Eleatics (on the not so different concept of unity of nature in Democritus and the being with the Eleatics).
---
XIII 199
PlatoVsDemocritus/Adorno: even in Plato, as in the extreme counter-position to Democritus, on the one hand only the essence, only the idea should have reality, and the spatial world is simply called the "not his". In spite of this, the doctrine of the Methexis is formed by him, than the doctrine that this individual, in space and time, participated in the ideas themselves. That would be unimaginable if it was the absolutely void. Essence/Being/Democritus/Eleatics/Adorno: the distinction between the intrinsical and the actual being or of the being and the mere doxa is completely common to Democritus and its eleatic opponents.
Materialism: one finds this motive of the strictly performed distinction between essence and appearance through history, as, for example, in Marx.
