The continental philosophers who have most impressed me have been Locke for his political philosophy Hume for his consistency Nietzsche for his radical creativity Spinoza for his alluring materialism and Kant for his comprehensive reconciliation of materialism and idealism Of the lot I have studied and known Kant and Nietzsche best Spinoza least yet Spinoza haunts and I may return Both Spinoza and Kant were mystics in The Sense That Both Of Them Point Towards The Inscuitable sense that both of them point towards the inscuitable Spinoza the mystery has to do with his strict causal materialism as

#IT IS LINKED ON THE ONE #
is linked on the one to mind and on the other to freedom In part this is the negative freedom of the philosopher the freedom from the snares of ordinary life but it is also than that much than that The mystery towards which Spinoza s philosophy points is that of the cosmos which as Matter is to Mind amounts to od and the freedom the positive freedom his work points to is that of the Citrus: A History ground of being a certain omnipotence I think that what Spinoza and Kant do is in thisrand manner basically the same but while Spinoza starts from a determinist materialism Kant starts from the standpoint of transcendental idealism his concepts of the understanding suggesting much earlier on the Ideas of Divine Reason Towards the end of Building the South Side: Urban Space and Civic Culture in Chicago, 1890-1919 graduate school I befriended a Loyola philosophy professor Phil Moran who had studied at the University of Moscow the old University of Moscow pre Gorbachev In the course of one of our long talks at my home he noted that Spinoza was big in Soviet academe That was a surprise initially but the I thought about it the sense it made Spinoza does come across initially as compatible with dialectical materialism enough to pass the censors and do his subversive work I haveiven this 4 star because of its importance in philosophical intellectual history as well as its importance in the history of the body and emotions Its legacy continues to weigh heavy on the world we live in Even where I may disagree it is either through tense intellectual wrangling that creates knots in my own mind or through recourse to modern knowledge that Spinoza could not have had access to as such it is a tour de force so even on that score alone it is a work that is a pleasure to tangle with Ethics presents a monolithic metaphysical system derived from axioms and definitions possessing austere beauty and it seems reat psychological insight This is especially found in Spinoza s enumeration of the basic emotions and the elaborations of these plus his solution to the problems they consistently cause to human beings Apart from that Spinoza is enormously invested in an elaborate higher metaphysics melding sublime notions of God man and nature Upon that foundation after a couple of hundred pages of seamless order political philosophy is dealt with in one page only The result is frighteningAt one point by use of his relentless eometrical method Spinoza derives the conclusion that it is perfectly fine for humans to cause serious suffering to animals This seems to be because we are in some curious Spinozistic fashion special If this is pure philosophical reasoning that makes the assumption that all other things are eualand this is my sense pure philosophical reasoning that makes the assumption that all other things are eualand this is my sense is interesting But perhaps all other things are never eual there is no ceteris paribus After witnessing the perfect movement from high flown abstract principles to the justification of extreme cruelty to animals I hope so Spinoza doesn t hold. Baruch Spinoza places freedom as the ultimate aim and central value of the life well lived His philosophy is marked by the most thorough oing naturalism of any of its period so much so that a number of its central tenets remain a matter of lively debate today Spinoza's commitment to the search for a comprehensive understanding of all things inspired Einstein Further discoveries in the neuro. Ethica Ordine Geometrico DemonstrataTractatus de Intellectus EmendationeGument seemed to hinge on the idea that an infinite substance cannot be bounded so there can be no other substance save one and that is God s ultimately Of course Spinoza does seem to make distinctions between God s infinite attributes and His substance which must become finite at some point Spinoza does not elaborate on how infinite attributessubstance can become finite It seems that at some point most likely in God infinite substance becomes finite as thought and extension All of this makes Spinoza s pantheism problematic He simply removes a multiplicity of substances from one place namely from a mundane mechanical universe and places multiplicity within God Himself Regardless of whether or not Spinoza does some sleight of hand and uses different terms to describe God s nature his od is ultimately a divided and multiform Class and Conformity: A Study in Values - With a Reassessment (Midway Reprint) god so pantheism is only a fitting description of Spinozism with very particular caveats and provisos I was probably at my most impatient while reading Spinoza s discourse regarding emotions Here he vacillates uite a bit All emotions in Spinoza s causal universe are simply reactionary states Love is both a negative and positive emotion for Spinoza It s positive when it s intellectual whatever the hell that means and negative when it entails compassion and pity which is usually included in the typical definition of love I should enlighten the reader that Spinoza is rather adamant about using his own definitions of words This is something he tries toet across at the very beginning of the works included here His definitions are sometimes uite euivocal though so consistency is a problem for Spinoza especially in his discussion of emotions As far as love Class Warfare: Class, Race, and College Admissions in Top-Tier Secondary Schools goes one must note that Spinoza s definition is not only idiosyncratic but pretty ridiculous He attempts to make love both an emotion and not an emotion He than once claims thatood and evil are simply pleasure and pain and nothing How one can say that pleasure is intellectual I don t uite know but suffice it to say that Spinoza s euivocal and ambivalent use of terminology would never aid someone in putting suffice it to say that Spinoza s euivocal and ambivalent use of terminology would never aid someone in putting ethics into practical use Also his ethical system is so apathetic that I can t see it being anything but a negotiable and capricious ethics Spinoza helped foment deistic thought So I suppose he holds a uniue position in that regard There was a time when I identified with deism I now see it for what it is Deism denies God in practice but accepts Him in theory Atheism denies God in both theory and in practice While I think deism is certainly far intelligent than atheism it is practically speaking no different so it s little wonder that deism Common People: The History of An English Family gave way to atheism during the age of enlightenment Spinoza is a deist s theologian Since I left deistic thought a long time ago I don t see much that speaks to me now in this kind of writing Life changing if you let it be American novelist and professor of philosophy Rebecca Newberger Goldstein has chosen to discuss Baruch Spinoza s Ethics on FiveBooks as one of the top five on her subject Reason and its Limitations saying that He is of course one of thereat 17 century rationalists someone who made all the claims for reason that have ever been made There is reat ambiguity in him He was called a God is reat ambiguity in him He was called a God man by the poet Novalis But he was also perhaps one of the most effective atheists of all time The full interview is available here That which is infinite cannot be divided Pure poetr.

Back but something oes wrongAt a higher level the notions of body and thought being just two of the limitless modes of what he refers to as God but the only two accessible to our understanding is very engaging and evocative Einstein said the God he believed in was the Spinozist God The Ethics was a major influence on enlightenment philosophy and is a classic statement of the non existence of free will Maybe it s a book you should read if you really want to and pass over without uilt if you don t In any case I enjoyed it A reasonable faith depends on our willingness to disband the temporal certainties for the permanent possibilities Spinoza s view from nowhere is a scientist s heaven This book is now crammed into my nightstand collection along with other sacred texts I didn t care for Spinoza to put it simply First of all and probably most importantly is I can t stand fatalism I hate it in philosophy and I really hate it in theology Spinoza supports absolute causality even down to human emotions His trivializing of human and divine nature is so annoying and problematic that it is surprising that he became so influential While he Composition and Literature: Bridging the Gap gets some things right that Descartesot wrong namely by countering the inane method of Cartesian doubt he ets so many other things wrong that I cannot say he was much better than Descartes I do find it befuddling that often people will cite Descartes and Spinoza as pioneers of modern philosophy This is a surprising assertion because firstly philosophy has never taken a prolonged hiatus since Pythagoras and the Pre Socratics It is surprising secondly because I do not see much that they brought to the table that was new and constructive I think the people who place them in a uniue position in the history of philosophy intend to mean that their output contributed to skepticism AND ENLIGHTENMENT NOTIONS I position in the history of philosophy intend to mean that their output contributed to skepticism AND ENLIGHTENMENT NOTIONS I DON enlightenment notions I still don see much that was novel however Skepticism was already a component of philosophy If these same people mean to et across that they beget systems that were not overtly religious than that would not constitute a first either Certainly philosophy even during the Christian centuries was never bound to only theological matters Much of Ockham whom I ve read was not always overtly religious philosophically speaking So I definitely don t think that non religious philosophy started with these two It might be that they are considered first in developing particular methods and systems Even here I don t see where they are uniue in the history of philosophySpinoza is often called a pantheist while this is a suitable description to a degree his pantheism is not consistent and is incredibly problematic As far as mundane mechanics o his pantheism works somewhat although it is simplistic and in my opinion silly He ets into trouble once he discourses on Divine nature Unity or pan ness is there left at the door and is no longer applicable without issues Spinoza s od suffers from a fractured nature his substance is removed from his attributes and his attributes are subject to his nature God isn t free in Spinoza s system He is subject to His own nature This must entail I suppose that His attributes and His substance are somehow different from His nature What we have is a od that is made up of various What we have is a od that is made up of various What his nature is I can t uite say because I didn t note any discussion of it in here as such Spinoza believes that the world of causal mechanics shares in God s substance His ar. Sciences in the early twenty first century provide evidence that Spinoza's biological understanding of the emotions may also have been essentially on target It was upon this prescient naturalistic scientific foundation that Spinoza developed a new approach to ethics Perhaps the most important heirs to Spinoza's thought are Nietzsche Marx and Freud but the Radical Enlightenment has recently
