Spinoza on Philosophy, Religion, and Politics: The Theologico-Political Treatise

Spinoza's Theologico-Political Treatise is concurrently a piece of philosophy and a section of functional politics. It defends spiritual pluralism, a republican type of political supplier, and the liberty to philosophise, with a decision that's super infrequent in seventeenth-century inspiration. however it can be a fierce and polemical intervention in a sequence of Dutch disputes over concerns approximately which Spinoza and his competitors cared very deeply.

Kierkegaard views this abstract state of knowledge as a spiritless form of rebellion against the Good. Spiritlessness is not the conscious and earnest movement against the Good we will come to see as radical evil, but is a weak evasion and lack of earnestness toward one's existence, and one's relationship with the Good. Spiritlessness' conscious belief is that it is on the side of the Good, and assures itself that when enough knowledge has been gained, it will certainly act accordingly. As usual, these assurances are evasions.

It is the task of freedom to pick up this basis (for the spirit of evil provides a basis for the spirit of love) and be transformed through a self-positing which allows the good to be manifested through one's selfhood. In other words, we must awaken to the possibility of good and evil, and allow the good to arise out of this propensity to evil. Notes 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Immanuel Kant.
