Human existence is incorporated into the Spinozian framework and worldview. This book explains, links, and applies several areas of Spinoza's thought on human life. It is a comprehensive presentation rather than a piecemeal study of features of Spinoza's thought. The Ethics is interpreted in the spirit of its author, as a guide to the free life. The study brings out the aesthetic dimension of Spinoza's Ethics: the central message being the possibility of fulfillment of human essence in freedom and joy. The book was written in this spirit.

Review:

«Lewis Schipper provides an extraordinarily comprehensive and intelligent discussion of Spinoza's philosophy. It speaks to crucial questions of our time in an elegant style for a general intellectual audience. No other book on Spinoza is at once so lively, amusing, and thoughtful - an invaluable aid to students.» (Wilhelm S. Wurzer, Duquesne University)
«Much has been written on Spinoza's philosophy. But in my view, Professor Lewis Schipper's book 'Spinoza's Ethics: The View From Within' makes a very valuable and noteworthy contribution to that large literature. A mere glance at the titles of his 11 rich chapters reveals the range, depth and sophistication of his multi-faceted treatment, which spans all of the essential topics in Spinoza's thought, rather than merely his ethics. I learned much from this book and recommend it warmly to others.» (Adolf Grünbaum, University of Pittsburgh)
