    Sympathy and Affectuum Imitatio: Spinoza and Hume as Social and Political Psychologists.Rudmer Bijlsma - 2014 - South African Journal of Philosophy 33 (1):1-18.
    This paper starts from the premise that Spinoza and Hume share a realisticnaturalistic approach to human nature. Human beings are finite parts of nature, and as such strongly interdependent creatures. This interdependence is reflected in the central social-psychological principles that Hume and Spinoza employ, respectively sympathy and affectuum imitatio. Both principles show the immediacy of the communication of passions, and the strong influence that other people’s passions exert over our own affective lives. Central to this paper are an analysis and (...)

    Spinoza's Politics: Between Tradition and Utopia.Rudmer Bijlsma - 2011 - Bijdragen 72 (2):161-182.

Is political freedom just a condition of peace and security for the collective, or does it also entail the moral freedom of the Ethics? The former interpretation seems plausible, since Spinoza’s politics is chiefly concerned with peace and security. Yet certain passages of the political works echo the moral ideal of the Ethics, namely (...)

    Spinoza, Hume, and the Fate of the Natural Law Tradition.Rudmer Bijlsma - 2015 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 76 (4):267-283.
    This paper explores the common ground in the views on natural law, justice and sociopolitical development in Hume and Spinoza. Spinoza develops a radically revisionary position in the natural law debate, building upon the bold equation of right and power. Hume is best interpreted as offering a skeptical–empirical reworking of traditional natural law theories, which maintains much of the practical purport of these theories, while providing it with a new, metaphysically less firm, but also less problematic, foundation. What the two (...)
