    Baruch Spinoza (AKA Benedict Spinoza) ( - ) was a Dutch philosopher of Portuguese Jewish origin who lived and worked during the Age of Reason.. Along with René Descartes and Gottfried Leibniz, he is considered one of the great Rationalists of the 17th Century, although the breadth and importance of his work was not fully realized until years after his death. Spinozism (also spelled Spinozaism) is the monist philosophical system of Baruch Spinoza that defines "God" as a singular self-subsistent Substance, with both matter and thought being attributes of such.. In a letter to Henry Oldenburg, Spinoza wrote: "as to the view of certain people that I identify god with nature (taken as a kind of mass or corporeal matter), they are quite mistaken".

    Benedict de Spinoza, Hebrew forename Baruch, Latin forename Benedictus, Portuguese Bento de Espinosa, (born Novem , Amsterdam—died Febru , The Hague), Dutch Jewish philosopher, one of the foremost exponents of 17th-century Rationalism and one of the early and seminal figures of the masterwork is the treatise Ethics ().   The 'Theory of Knowledge' programme is central to the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate. It encourages students to question the basis of knowledge and to develop the ability to evaluate critically information. This book provides an introductory framework for this subject.4/5(3).

    The result is a text that provides all of its own evidence. Every statement in the book has a clearly identified set of arguments (proofs) given for it. Sometimes when you read a technical or old text, the very language can be a challenge to overcome. With Spinoza, the main technical terms are explicitly defined. introductory books on Spinoza in a number of ways. First, it does not assume that you have any philosophical background. I do not presume that you know (or remember) Descartes’ theory of sub-stance, that you understand what ‘extension’ means or that you already know what ‘naturalism’ is. As far as possible, I explain.

R Parkinson. Professor Parkinson's book on Spinoza's theory of knowledge makes a serious attempt to consider this theme in isolation. The author argues that an understanding of this particular theory is a prerequisite to any understanding of Spinoza's theory of ethics or his metaphysical views.

Baruch Spinoza wants us to do one thing only: think clearly. But how. This book offers the reader an accessible picture of Spinoza’s three-grade theory of knowledge, one that culminates in what Spinoza calls intuitive science (scientia intuitiva).

Spinoza thinks that intuitive science is the highest possible human achievement.5/5(4). Spinoza's theory of knowledge is a strange and hybrid creature. An organic, inseparable part of his total philosophical system, it blends highly distinctive, original (even bizarre) formulations with both “modern” - especially Cartesian - influences, and ideas and aspirations rooted in much older thought.

Many recent commentators on Spinoza's epistemology have particularly stressed the Cartesian background of Cited by: (PDF) Spinoza on Knowledge | Aaron Garrett - A brief (6, word) introduction to Spinoza's epistemology via what I take to be Spinoza's belief that epistemic properties are metaphysical properties as expressed in the attribute of thought.

These two kinds of knowledge are described and illustrated in scholium 2 to Prop II Spinoza’s theory of knowledge also has an ethical dimension which emerges from his consideration of a third kind of knowledge,intuition.

This is briefly discussed in scholium 2 to Prop II Apparently intuitive knowledge has the following features: 1.

Ethics, Demonstrated in Geometrical Order, usually known as the Ethics, is a philosophical treatise written in Latin by Benedictus de Spinoza. It was written between and and was first published posthumously in The book is perhaps the most ambitious attempt to apply the method of Euclid in philosophy.

Spinoza puts forward a small number of definitions and axioms from which he attempts to. The Ethics (Spinoza’s main work), is exposed as is a treatise on geometry: from definitions, axioms and postulates, it follows an ordered series of theorems, proofs and corollaries.

This geometry, far from being inessential, the manifest will of the philosopher to. Spinoza’s God: A pantheistic theory. Indeed, one of the important issues of Spinoza‘s philosophy is to understand the concept of a God “out of religion”. Contrary to the God of religion Spinoza’s God is not a person but a principle.

Baruch Spinoza offers a three grade theory of knowledge in his Ethics: Demonstrated in Geometric Order.

I was also very impressed with the chapters on Spinoza's theory of knowledge (Ch. 6) and virtue (Ch. This is definitely first-rate philosophical commentary. I do believe that this book is the best introduction to Spinoza.

My study recommendations are as follows: (l) When reading the Ethics for the first time, read Nadler's book along side s: present book may help to correct this situation.
