      TL;DR Read the abridged version of the Ethics and Della Rocca's Spinoza before tackling the Ethics proper. Ignore the proofs of the propositions but read the scholia. The “ethical” part of the Ethics (Parts III, IV and IV) is much more accessible.   Spinoza's theory of thought and action goes something like this: the mind is the idea of the body, and it conceives the body, sometimes adequately and sometimes less so. When the mind thinks adequately (i.e., rationally), it understands truly and affirms a parallel sequence of bodily actions, which the body, being the object of the mind, : Beth Lord.

    An Introduction to the Work of Spinoza Baruch (Latin: Benedict) Spinoza () was one of the premier founders and defenders of the modern project of religious liberalism and freedom of speech and thought, and of Dutch commercial republicanism.   In these interesting times, we all need someone to admire.
