  1. Spinoza.Gideon Segal & Yirmiahu Yovel - 2001 - Ashgate Pub Limited.
    The twenty-five articles collected for this anthology display a wide range of interpretations to central themes in Spinoza's philosophy. The reader is presented with a living debate engaged by first-rate scholars, who come to grips with the ideas of a philosopher seen as one of the few founders of the modern mind. The book displays a panoramic picture of Spinoza scholarship over the last three decades, while providing key insights for further inquiry. Each paper included treats its subject as a (...)

  2. Beyond Subjectivity: Spinoza's Cognitivism of the Emotions.Gideon Segal - 2000 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 8 (1):1 – 19.
    In what follows I try to show that Spinoza modelled his project of rational psychology, in some of its major respects, upon Descartes's metaphysics of matter. I argue further that, like Descartes, who paid for the rationalization of the science of matter the price of having to leave out of his description non-quantifiable qualities, so Spinoza left out of his psychology the non-rationalizable aspects of emotions, i.e. whatever in them could not be subsumed under common notions. He therefore was left (...)

Indeed, 'freedom' is meant here mainly in the context of human bondage to the affects, (...)

    Spinoza on Knowledge and the Human Mind: Papers Presented at the Second Jerusalem Conference.Yirmiyahu Yovel & Gideon Segal (eds.) - 1993 - Brill.
    Truth, adequacy and error, the Mind-Body relation and the meaning of "having" an idea are issues still at the center of philosophical debate. Spinoza belongs to those past masters whose work always inspires renewed insights on these as on other philosophical issues. This volume revolves around Part II of Spinoza's _opus magnum_, the _Ethics_ where he offers his theory of knowledge and the human mind. Stuart Hampshire writes about "Truth and Correspondence"; Alexandre Matheron discusses "Ideas of Ideas and Certainty"; Alan (...)
