The Mind and the Body as 'One and the Same Thing' in Spinoza


Authors

Abstract
I argue that, contrary to how he is often read, Spinoza did not believe that the mind and the body were numerically identical. This means that we must find some alternative reading for his claims that they are 'one and the same thing'
