Spinoza's ETHICS

PHIL 311
Fall 2010
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: COL 311
Certificates: Jewish and Israel Studies

This course is devoted to close reading of one of the philosophical masterpieces of the Western tradition. The ETHICS is of genuine contemporary interest, with its metaphysics that combine materialism with theism, its philosophical psychology that anticipates Freud, and its attempt to reconcile human freedom with a belief in scientific explanation. This is a difficult, vast, profound work that requires and will repay close study.
