Hello. Please help me to write 5 sentences for my journal entry. The question is Spinoza takes issues with the idea that the human being is free and sovereign, “a kingdom within a kingdom” (beginning of Part 3). Instead, he stresses the idea of determination. What do you think? Do we act in complete freedom, or are we compelled to do what we do?
• Reading: Ethics, Part 3, pp. 277-279, and Part 4, p.320 (numbers on the book page )
You do not have to read the whole thing just the highlighted part. Thank you.
