ABSTRACT

Theodore W. Adorno is a Jewish German philosopher who says that he lived with the ‘experience of violence’ of Nazism throughout his life and felt violence in various phenomena. Adorno’s point was that ‘violence is a ubiquitous world.’ For him, a life after Auschwitz would have meant that a variety of violence in daily life would have to be experienced under the associations in Auschwitz. It should be interpreted that the well-known phrase ‘to write poetry after Auschwitz’ is a barbarity. There is constant conflict, terror, and murder in the world, and human violence toward the same race is accepted as a human being, and it can be criticized in terms of social evolution. This paper has attempted a critical review of the paper by Professor Wilfried Gottschalch of the man and violence (Menschlichkeit und Gewalt). The struggle in nature is very simple and clear. This is due to the acquisition of food and the act of leaving genes. Chimpanzees and other infanticide killings can also be understood as strategies to bring their genes to the posterity in the first place. The formation of the herd, the contents of the formation, and the choice of solitary action are also aimed at this acquisition. But human beings are greatly different. Especially since the beginning of agriculture, occupation of land is important and the difference from the natural world becomes clear. They have struggled with other villages in order to occupy and expand farmland. Because the dispute took place among the groups, the disputes were so incomparable to those of the natural world. Group relations appeared in various categories such as religion and country as well as agricultural villages. And now, as the modernization progresses, it is possible to have a big victim even in one fight. The same is true of wars and it also has a variety of victims. This fight can not but be said to be human-specific. However, it will be said that it is a stable acquisition of food and sex as in nature. This article presents the origin of human violence, and furthermore, it has highlighted the uniqueness of violence in humanity. However, instead of mentioning its solution, it was replaced by a discussion of humanity. For as long as life is maintained, the solution will remain an eternal task.
