Ethica Ordine Geometrico DemonstrataTractatus de Intellectus Emendatione review ½ eBook or Kindle ePUB Baruch Spinoza places freedom as the ultimate aim and central value of the life well lived His philosophy is marked by the most thorough going 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. 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 gets some things right that Descartes got wrong namely by countering the inane method of Cartesian doubt he gets 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 still don t see much that was novel however Skepticism was already a component of philosophy If these same people mean to get 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 go his pantheism works somewhat although it is simplistic and in my opinion silly He gets 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 god 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 god that is made up of various parts 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 argument 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 god is ultimately a divided and multiform 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 to get 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 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 that good 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 his 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 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
