Delphi Collected Works of Baruch Spinoza (Illustrated)


The Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza was one of the foremost exponents of seventeenth century Rationalism and an early figure of the Enlightenment. His magnum opus, ‘Ethics’ (1677), opposed Descartes’ philosophy of mind–body dualism, earning Spinoza recognition as one of Western philosophy's most important thinkers. His works would leave a lasting impression on Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche and Schopenhauer.
