The Spiritual Automaton synopsis
Eugene Marshall presents an innovative and innovative account of Spinoza's mental philosophy, where mind is presented as an emotional mechanism, which, when acting rationally, acts as a spiritual person. The central feature of the account is a new concept of consciousness, a concept that defines awareness with influence, a property of a typical but incomplete idea through those thought patterns that Spinoza calls affect.
Insufficient and sufficient thoughts come to consciousness, thus affecting our well-being and establishing or disturbing our happiness, only as much as they become affected, and thus, conscious. Ideas become influenced by entering into appropriate causal relationships with other thoughts that form the mind.
Moreover, the subject of consciousness in Spinoza provides a well-established entry point to its system, because it flows directly from its central metaphysical, cognitive and psychological obligations - and does so in a way that allows us to see Spinoza philosophy as a whole. Moreover, doing so provides a consistent and up-to-date way of thinking about the basic ideas in his thought.
Marshall's reading provides a new understanding of adequacy, brilliance, power, activity and negativity, influences, tampering, slavery, freedom, free will, ecstasy, blessing, salvation, and eternal spirit. In short, by explaining the mechanisms of emotional awareness in Spinoza, The Spiritual Automaton highlights the systematic philosophical and ethical project of Spinoza as a whole, as well as its details, in a new and amazing way..
