About this product
- DescriptionReaders of Spiza's philosophy have often been daunted, and sometimes been enchanted, by the geometrical method which he employs in his philosophical masterpiece the Ethics. In Meaning in Spiza's Method Aaron Garrett examines this method and suggests that its purpose, in Spiza's view, was t just to present claims and propositions but also in some sense to change the readers and allow them to look at themselves and the world in a different way. His discussion draws t only on Spiza's works but also on those of the philosophers who influenced Spiza most strongly, including Hobbes, Descartes, Maimonides and Gersonides. This controversial book will be of interest to historians of philosophy and to anyone interested in the relation between form and content in philosophical works.
