Baruch de Spinoza and later Benedict de Spinoza (November 24, 1632 – February 21, 1677) was a Dutch Jewish philosopher. Revealing considerable scientific aptitude, the breadth and importance of Spinoza's work was not fully realized until years after his death. Today, he is considered one of the great rationalists of the 17th-century philosophy, laying the groundwork for the 18th century Enlightenment and modern biblical criticism.

ABSTRACT: Spinoza has a formidable reputation as an abstract philosopher in the rationalist school of the 17th century. They are much more reader friendly and the arguments are simple, following from the foundations in Ethics. At least, Spinoza so believed. This standard image of him stems from his elegant Ethics, examining men and women with the Euclidean method of axioms, corollaries and implications. He launched a fascinating theory about moral naturalism and ethical determinism, much debated by other great philosophers. This paper presents systematically the political theory in Tractatus Politicus, which has received too little attention.

Benedict de Spinoza, Ethics

Benedict de Spinoza, Ethics. Les stoïciens ont voulu soutenir que nos passions dépendent entièrement de notre volonté, et que nous pouvons les gouverner avec une autorité sans bornes; mais l'expérience les a contraint d'avouer, en dépit de leurs principes, qu'il ne faut pas peu de soins et d'habitude pour contenir et régler nos passions.

Baruch de Spinoza (Benedict de Spinoza, Bento de Espinosa, Benedictus de Spinoza) (1632-1677) was a Dutch philosopher of Portuguese Jewish origin. The breadth and importance of Spinoza's work was not fully realized until years after his death. Today, he is considered one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy, laying the groundwork for the 18th-century Enlightenment and modern biblical criticism. By virtue of his magnum opus, the posthumous Ethics (1677), he is also considered one of Western philosophy's definitive ethicists. Spinoza lived quietly as a lens grinder, turning down rewards and honours throughout his life, including prestigious teaching positions. Spinoza became known in the Jewish community for positions contrary to normative Jewish belief, with critical positions towards the Talmud and other religious texts. Spinoza's philosophy has much in common with Stoicism in as much as both philosophies sought to fulfil a therapeutic role by instructing people how to attain happiness. His other works include: On the Improvement of the Understanding and A Theologico-Political Treatise.

This is not an easy read, even by the standards of serious philosophical texts. Spinoza structures his work like Euclid's Elements—logical arguments built on definitions, axioms and propositions. Readers must constantly search back in the text to find previously established arguments which are used to prove new claims. His language is not particularly lucid either—take the demonstration for IIIP56 (page 100):

"But we are necessarily acted on (by P1) insofar as we have inadequate ideas, and only insofar as we have them (by P3) are we acted on, that is (see IIP40S) necessarily we are acted on only insofar as we imagine, or (see IIP17 and P17S) insofar as we are affected with an affect which involves both the nature of our body and the nature of an external body."

Nonetheless, Spinoza's theories were revolutionary, and it is an impressive feat to derive a comprehensive theory of nature, the mind and ethics in this fashion.

Spinoza was, and will most likely always will be, one of the greatest philosophers. Ethics is the most comprehensive treatise on the human mind and how it is the core of every aspect of our lives. Breaking down emotions, beliefs, reactions and why we experience them. His logic and presentation is hard to find fault with. It's not the easiest book to read, but well worth it if you take the time to really comprehend the full picture. T just goes to show that a 17th century mind was no less advanced than any of the great thinkers of modern day. You don't have to agree with every philosophy within the pages to truly enjoy the beauty of its well thought out explanation. Recommended to anyone who likes to keep an open mind and learn from other peoples perspectives.

This review is not for the contents of the book!
I find it impossible to read this edition since the fonts are super tiny. I regret the purchase of this version, for such a great book. Buy any other one but this!

Not what I expected but still was informative.

Foundational philosophy for contemporary neuroscience.

If you want to read a book that touches on the essence of every aspect of existence, start here. The format of this book is intimidating, but it is accessible to anyone. It is meant to be read intently. Spinoza breaks down common experience to demonstrate how pure reason leads to an understand of Nature, revealing the wonder of the mundane.

Dense and Hard to read, but worth it.
Great book. Really makes you think.
