If one were to ask any group of serious thinkers, of either the Orient or the Occident, to name those philosophic works which have made the most lasting impression upon them, it is quite certain that most of them would include Spinoza's Ethics. This book, which the philosopher himself described as an effort to present "the road to inner freedom," is, without question, one of the most profound and basic works in all philosophic literature.
To teach man to be master of his passions and emotions - that, in the last analysis, is the goal of the Ethics.

About the Author
Benedict de Spinoza (1632–1677) was born in Amsterdam, where his orthodox Jewish family had fled from persecution in Portugal. Expelled from the synagogue for his heterodox philosophy, he identified God with nature and denied the possibility of an act of creation.
