New PDF release: Everything in Its Right Place: Spinoza and Life by the Light

By Joseph Almog

In Everything in Its correct Place, Joseph Almog develops the unitarian and universalist metaphysics of Spinoza. Spinoza's floor 0 thesis is that "Nature is one and all." every thing (including God, arithmetic, morals, our personal suggestions) unearths its position inside Spinoza's (capital N) Nature. it's the position that every factor occupies in the grid of Nature-from God on down the cosmic tree of being-that determines its primary (lowercase n) nature. For Spinoza, one's nature depends upon one's position in Nature or, by way of the basic axiom of the book-the Nature-unfolding axiom: the character of x=Nature at x.

Almog's analyzing of Spinoza is targeted in its realizing of the deductive abstractions of half I-II of the Ethics via the concrete illustrations of Spinoza's intended material in his political writings, the place he tells us at once (i) what Nature is and (ii) how man's nature isn't really a separate nation from the Nature-kingdom yet in basic terms an unfolding of it. This leads, as within the Ethics, to a last bankruptcy on what it intended to Spinoza to dwell in symbiosis with Nature and, for that reason, to be one with it-and with God.
