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

Spinoza's Theologico-Political Treatise is at the same time a piece of philosophy and a bit of useful politics. It defends spiritual pluralism, a republican type of political business enterprise, and the liberty to philosophise, with a decision that's super infrequent in seventeenth-century concept. however it can also be a fierce and polemical intervention in a chain of Dutch disputes over concerns approximately which Spinoza and his rivals cared very deeply.

S o if I say in French "philosophie et pense, " it's something different. So I try in my own lan­ guage to draw a line , an antithetical line between philoso­ phie and pense.

For in­ stance, in the German debate between Kant and Hegel [ and] Schelling, abou t Humboldt-the place of philoso­ phy within the university. As you know, some of you are , like myself, interested in this problem of the conflict o f faculties .
