Synopsis

Benedict de Spinoza lived a life of blameless simplicity as a lens-grinder in Holland. And yet in his lifetime, he was expelled from the Jewish community in Amsterdam as a heretic, and after his death his words were first banned by the Christian authorities as atheistic, then hailed by humanists as the gospel of Pantheism. His "Ethics Demonstrated in Geometrical Order" shows us the reality behind this enigmatic figure. First published by his friends after his premature death at the age of 44, the "Ethics" uses the methods of Euclid to describe a single entity, properly called both "God" and "Nature", of which mind and matter are two manifestations. From this follow, in ways that are strikingly modern, the identity of mind and body, the necessary causation of events and actions, and the illusory nature of free will.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Benedict de Spinoza (1632-1677), Dutch philosopher born of Portuguese-Jewish parents. An independent thinker, Spinoza declined offers of academic posts and pursued his individual philosophical inquiry, earning his living as a grinder of lenses. He was a major figure in 17th Century Rationalism and is regarded as the most eminent expounder of Pantheism. He believed that God, the Universe and Nature are one and everything in the Universe is part of God. Ethics was his major work and was published posthumously in 1677.

Spinoza, a hidden gem 1. Februar 2013
Von Pharmanator - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I must admit, stumbling upon Spinoza's work was somewhat of an accident for me. I happened to be listening to a debate one day in which a secularist described him as, "one of the greatest ethicists that ever lived." Such a tall accolade intrigued me which lead me to pursue some information about this unknown man. It lead me to this book.

Describing the book, it is quite possibly one of the most abstract and difficult pieces of literature that I have tried to read and understand. Some out there may find this only moderately difficult to comprehend, to that I say good for you! But nevertheless I spent quite a few days reading each of Spinoza's propositions and thinking on them. I can happily say that the time spent on this book was well worth the effort. For the period that he grew up in, Spinoza was able to transcend his environment with his ideas about human intelligence, human bondage, god, and more.

It is such a shame that here in Midwestern America, we are never exposed to such innovative ways of thinking such as the ones Spinoza possessed.

This is not a book that you will read once, you may find yourself returning to it time and time again, for as you move through life, Spinoza's words will allow you to transcend what your environment conditions you to accept.

Well Worth Tackling 1. April 2009
Von Barnard Rollit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I won't say I'm finding Spinoza a walk in the park, but the effort required has so far been well worth it. The Wordsworth Classics edition is a very nice, easy-to-read volume with, for me, sufficiently helpful introductory material. And you can't beat the price.
