I'm trying to run down a quote from (I think) Hegel which I read several years ago and have not been able to find since.
The gist of it is this...
"What an animal, for the sake of its own survival, needs to believe the truth to be needn't bear any relationship to what the truth actually is."
Does this, or something close to it, ring a bell with anyone? If so, I'd appreciate any guidance you might be able to give that would help me to run down the exact quote, its author (as I say, I think it was Hegel) and the work in which author wrote it.
