    Is he born without a function? Proposition 7: It is the nature of a substance to exist. For there is required, as we said, not only complete virtue but also a complete life, since many changes occur in life, and all manner of chances, and the most prosperous may fall into great misfortunes in old age, as is told of Priam in the Trojan Cycle; and one who has experienced such chances and has ended wretchedly no one calls happy. And if this inquiry belongs to political science, clearly the pursuit of it will be in accordance with our original plan. This unique nature, unified and necessary is what Spinoza calls God.

    Life seems to be common even to plants, but we are seeking what is peculiar to man. Now each man judges well the things he knows, and of these he is a good judge. It seems to be so also from the fact that it is a first principle; for it is for the sake of this that we all do all that we do, and the first principle and cause of goods is, we claim, something prized and divine. And one might ask the question, what in the world they mean by 'a thing itself', is as is the case in 'man himself' and in a particular man the account of man is one and the same.

    It seems different in different actions and arts; it is different in medicine, in strategy, and in the other arts likewise. Part IV: Of the Servitude of Humanity, or the Strength of the Emotions[ edit ] The fourth part analyzes human passions, which Spinoza sees as aspects of the Ethics and other knowledge book that direct us outwards to seek what gives pleasure and shun what gives pain. This happens from two reasons, one being drawn from the thing itself; for because one extreme is nearer and liker to the intermediate, we oppose not this but rather its contrary to the intermediate. And the corresponding statement is true of builders and of all the rest; men will be good or bad builders as a result of building well or badly. Therefore, if there is an end for all that we do, this will be the good achievable by action, and if there are more than one, these will be the goods achievable by action.

Happiness, on the other hand, no one chooses for the sake of these, nor, in general, for anything other than itself.

Hence a young man is not a proper Ethics and other knowledge book of lectures on political science; for he is inexperienced in the actions that occur in life, but its discussions start from these and are about these; and, further, since he tends to follow his passions, his study will be vain and unprofitable, because the end aimed at is not knowledge but action.

Ethics and other knowledge book reasoning makes use of the intellectual virtues of scientific knowledge, intuition, and wisdom. The order of things is simply following God with an inviolable determinism.

The active feelings are all of them forms of self-realisation, of heightened activity, of strength of mind, and are therefore always pleasurable. Presumably, however, to say that happiness is the chief good seems a platitude, and a clearer account of what it is still desired.

Is it those that are pursued even when isolated from others, such as intelligence, sight, and certain pleasures and honours? All human feelings are derived from pleasure, pain and desire.

Now some of these views have been held by many men and men of old, others by a few eminent persons; and it is not probable that either of these should be entirely mistaken, but rather that they should be right in at least some one respect or even in most respects.

Ethics and morality are now used almost interchangeably in many contexts, but the name of the philosophical study remains ethics.

Then he proves that there is a substance with infinite attributes. He calls the conatus, sort of existential inertia, our tendency to persevere in being. With those who identify happiness with virtue or some one virtue our account is in harmony; for to virtue belongs virtuous activity.

Have the carpenter, then, and the tanner certain functions or activities, and has man none? For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them, e. Righteous indignation is a mean between envy and spite, and these states are concerned with the pain and pleasure that are felt at the fortunes of our neighbours; the man who is characterized by righteous indignation is pained at undeserved good fortune, the envious man, going beyond him, is pained at all good fortune, and the spiteful man falls so far short of being pained that he even rejoices.

Moral virtue is acquired by a combination of knowledge, habituation, and self-discipline. Therefore our account must be sound, at least according to this view, which is an old one and agreed on by philosophers. And so one might rather take the aforenamed objects to be ends; for they are loved for themselves.
