Σωτήρης  Αδαμαρέτσος
Κοίτα, που στα σαραντατρια αποφάσισα να (ξανά) ανακαλύψω τον Σπινόζα (κι όλα αυτά κατά λαθος!). Και συνεχίζει να με εντυπωσιάζει ακόμα και τώρα η ιδέα της αποδοχής των παθών του ανθρώπου ως μέρος της φύσης του, η ελευθερία του ως αναγκαιότητα, ο άνθρωπος ως επιθυμία, το "όση δύναμη, τόσο δίκαιο"· και πως η ηθική φιλοσοφία του επηρέασε και την πολιτική επιστήμη!
Θαυμάσιος... Θαυμάσιος!

رساله سیاسی سعی دارد تا با در نظر داشتن پایه های فلسفی كه پیشتر در اثار دیگر اسپینوزا مطرح شدن، نظامی سیاسی معرفی كند كه بتواند تا حد ممكن به واقعیت جامعه نزدیك بشود ولی در عین حال بتواند نیازهای انبوهه ای آزاد را هم پاسخ بدهد.
فصول اول كتاب به تعاریف پایه و بررسی حق طبیعی انسان، تفاوت های زندگی در شرایطجنگی و وضعیت طبیعی میگذرد و به این نتیجه میرسد كه حق تنها در تقابل با قدرت تعریف شدنی است وگرنه در نبود جامعه و در شرایط وضع طبیعی هیچ حق خاصی برای هیچ تكینه ای وجود ندارد . نكته حایز اهمیت هم

Boeiende inzichten van Spinoza over diverse staatsvormen zoals monarchie, aristocratie en (helaas) maar een aanzet over democratie, want het boek bleef onafgewerkt door zijn vroege dood. Wel interessant hoe hij een maatschappij ziet functioneren volgens de principes en gemoedstoestanden die hij in zijn Ethica heeft uiteengezet. En ja, de mens blijkt van nature alleen bekommerd om zijn eigen voortbestaan, maar dat hoeft niet te betekenen dat verstandig samenleven daar niet de goede weg naartoe ...more

This is an interesting work.

Spinoza explains with a crystal clear development the main aspects of his philosophy of the absolute immanence, and how it applies to politics, which will be understood as not a stretch, but instead a inevitable effect of the human nature.

He goes on to detail how he believes the governments should be configured. First monarchy, then aristrocracy and finally democracy, which unfortunately he wasn't able to finish before dying.

He sees democracy as the ideal form of

Spinoza's work brings us to a unity in the State through an emphasis on approaching politics through understanding how they actually are, rather than how we think they should be. Spinoza asserts that the emotional should be acknowledged and incorporated rather than suppressed, but that it is through the our commonality (in reason) that we can unite in cooperation. This then provides all with an investiture in the State, demanding of the sovereign an ongoing accommodation of the citizenry, and of ...more

Um livro que aparentemente sente o impacto do tempo.

Baruch Spinoza aborda a origem do Estado, justificando-o quanto ao bem comum e que é impossível agradar a todos.

Analisa a Monarquia, a Aristocracia e a Democracia, sugerindo modelos, a seu ver, ideais.

Entretanto, discordo de idéias tais como não remunerar o exército em tempos de paz (recebe o botim, nas guerras) e 1% do valor total das exportações como salário dos senadores.

Ou mesmo. a idéia ultrapassada do autor que as mulheres não se

"İnsanlar akıldan ziyade kör arzuyla davranırlar" (s.16). Peki, bu kadar doğru öncüllerden, Makyavelli ve Hobbes'dan bu kadar etkilenmiş bir düşünceden, nasıl bu denli 'rasyonel', akılcı, en ufak detayına dek belirlenmiş bir kurguya dayalı bir siyaset beklenebilir! Sanırım bu Spinoza hakkında genel bir sorunsal. Etika'yı okumak lazım.

Baruch Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher. The breadth and importance of Spinoza's work was not fully realized until many years after his death. By laying the groundwork for the 18th-century Enlightenment and modern biblical criticism, including modern conceptions of the self and, arguably, the universe, he came to be considered one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy.
His magnum
