      Spinoza is by far the most poorly understood Western philosopher—period.

Spinoza thought there was only one substance in the universe, and that the one substance had both material and mental properties, which he called “attributes.” In Spinoza’a system, everything has both a material and mental side to it.

“Interviewer: ‘Spinoza’s philosophy has strong similarities to Buddhism – most notably the concept that any notion of a separate and distinct self is an illusion.

Melameds Spinoza and Buddhism is a miserable and verbose rant. It contains very little evidence of familiarity with philosophy and a willingness to examine the Ethics for, say, the interdeduciblitity of the propositions, the relation of 'reason' to 'cause', the deducibility of social relations from primary emotions, the notion that adequate ideas of nature are occluded by passive emotions /5(2).

Ethics, Demonstrated in Geometrical Order (Latin: Ethica, ordine geometrico demonstrata), usually known as the Ethics, is a philosophical treatise written in Latin by Benedictus de was written between and and was first published posthumously in The book is perhaps the most ambitious attempt to apply the method of Euclid in philosophy.

He begins by explaining the necessity of God’s own existence and it being Go.

While my own book, Buddhism and Human Flourishing, involves an Aristotelian take on enlightenment. Buddha's life certainly exemplifies it. It is particularly interesting to compare the Book of Job with Spinoza's ideas. On the one hand, as in Spinoza's writings, Job's story says don't expect God to always reward you for your prayers and offerings and don't expect to be able to understand why all things happen the way they do in God's world.

Buddha explained that all our problems and suffering arise from confused and negative states of mind, and all our happiness and good fortune arise from peaceful and positive states of mind.

Spinoza’s method teaches us a method of self-examination and reflection which must be applied from an active mind.
