Spinoza: Practical Philosophy
City Lights Books. Spinoza's theoretical philosophy is one of the most radical attempts to construct a pure ontology with a single infinite substance. One wonders, finally, whether Man might be defined as a territory, a set of boundaries, a limit on existence.

He writes, ""spinoza did not believe in hope or even in courage; he believed only in joy and in vision. This book, which presents spinoza's main ideas in dictionary form, has as its subject the opposition between ethics and morality, and the link between ethical and ontological propositions.
