Preparing to Approach Spinoza

Preparing to Approach Spinoza

(p.112) Chapter 6 Preparing to Approach Spinoza
Learning from Six Philosophers Volume 1

Jonathan Bennett

Oxford University Press

Describes in what way Spinoza was a dualist and in what way a monist; his pantheism and its relation to atheism; his very special version of the so‐called ontological argument for the existence of God; his mind–body parallelism and rejection of mind–body interaction. His resolute naturalism: Wittgenstein's mockery about the mind as ‘a queer sort of medium’ hits Descartes but not Spinoza.

Keywords:   Descartes, dualism, God, monism, ontological argument, pantheism, parallelism, Spinoza, Wittgenstein
