Overview
A profoundly beautiful and uniquely insightful description of the universe, Benedict de Spinoza's "Ethics "is one of the masterpieces of Enlightenment-era philosophy.
Published shortly after his death, the "Ethics "is undoubtedly Spinoza's greatest work - an elegant, fully cohesive cosmology derived from first principles, providing a coherent picture of reality, and a guide to the meaning of an ethical life. Following a logical step-by-step format, it defines in turn the nature of God, the mind, the emotions, human bondage to the emotions, and the power of understanding - moving from a consideration of the eternal, to speculate upon humanity's place in the natural order, the nature of freedom and the path to attainable happiness. A powerful work of elegant simplicity, the "Ethics "is a brilliantly insightful consideration of the possibility of redemption through intense thought and philosophical reflection. The "Ethics "is presented in the standard translation of the work by Edwin Curley. This edition also includes an introduction by Stuart Hampshire, outlining Spinoza's philosophy and placing it in context.
