Show Summary Details

Preview

This book features 11 essays on the philosophy of Spinoza. These essays support the contention that Spinoza was not only a visionary, but also an acute philosopher who anticipated philosophical problems that continue to be the focus of attention. Spinoza’s main goal was to gain knowledge not just for its own sake, but for the sake of his own well-being. His philosophy was directed not only towards finding the truth, but also towards finding happiness. The essays cover three aspects of Spinoza’s philosophy: monism, mind, and the conatus doctrine.

Keywords: Spinoza; monism; mind; conatus doctrine
