The word that came to Jeremiah similar phrase in Jer 7:
Core doctrine[ edit ] In Spinozism, the concept of a personal relationship with God comes from the position that one is a part of an infinite interdependent "organism".
Spinoza argued that everything is a derivative of God, interconnected with all of existence. Although humans only experience thought and extension, what happens to one aspect of existence will still affect others. Thus, Spinozism teaches a form of determinism and ecology and supports this as a basis for morality.
All that happens or will happen could not have unfolded in any other way. Spinoza claimed that the third kind of knowledge, intuitionis the highest kind attainable.
More specifically, he defined this as the ability for the human intellect to intuit knowledge based upon its accumulated understanding of the world around them.
Early in The Ethics Spinoza argues that there is only one substance, which is absolutely infiniteself-caused, and eternal. From this substance, however, follow an infinite number of attributes the intellect perceiving an abstract concept or essence and modes things actually existing which follow from attributes and modes.
He calls this substance " God ", or " Nature ". In fact, he takes these two terms to be synonymous in the Latin the phrase he uses is "Deus sive Natura"but readers often disregard his neutral monism.
His philosophy was part of the philosophic debate in Europe during the Enlightenmentalong with Cartesianism.
By substance I understand what is in itself and is conceived through itself, i. E1D3  This means, essentially, that substance is just whatever can be thought of without relating it to any other idea or thing.
For example, if one thinks of a particular objectone thinks of it as a kind of thing, e.
Attributes[ edit ] Spinoza defines "attribute" as follows: By attribute I understand what the intellect perceives of a substance, as constituting its essence.
E1D4  From this it can be seen that attributes are related to substance in some way. Spinoza thinks that there are an infinite number of attributes, but there are two attributes for which Spinoza thinks we can have knowledge.
Namely, thought and extension. When we understand a particular thing in the universe through the attribute of thought, we are understanding the mode as an idea of something either another idea, or an object. Extension[ edit ] The attribute of extension is how substance can be understood to be physically extended in space.
Particular things which have breadth and depth that is, occupy space are what is meant by extended. Modes[ edit ] Modes are particular modifications of substance, i.
Spinoza gives the following definition: By mode I understand the affections of a substance, or that which is in another through which it is also conceived.
E1D5  Substance monism[ edit ] The argument for there only being one substance or, more colloquially, one kind of stuff in the universe occurs in the first fourteen propositions of The Ethics. Except God, no substance can be or be conceived.
E1P14  Spinoza takes this proposition to follow directly from everything he says prior to it.
It allows Spinoza to avoid the problem of interaction between mind and body, which troubled Descartes in his Meditations on First Philosophy. This can be seen directly from Axiom 3 of The Ethics: From a given determinate cause the effect follows necessarily; and conversely, if there is no determinate cause, it is impossible for an effect to follow.
I pass, finally, to the remaining Part of the Ethics, which concerns the means or way, leading to Freedom."Connectivity is absolutely key for any small business," says Diane Eschenbach, a consultant and the author of How to Quickly Start a Business Online."Small businesses really have to start.
