It could, in principle, be false beliefs that enhance survival. With respect to these items in the cosmos, it makes sense to ask why they exist rather than not. This work done, the ancestors went back to sleep. Very few texts from Anaximander remain today, but some information about the teachings of Anaximander have been preserved by later writers who disagreed with him.
A second set of hypotheses on language origin holds that language began as a response to some acute necessity in the community.
Essays in Cross-Cultural Philosophy of Religion. Is death the annihilation of persons or an event involving a transfiguration to a higher state? Let us concede that religious practice is antecedent to philosophical theories that justify the practice—a concession not shared by all.
