- Ethics (book)
"Ethics" is a philosophical book written by
Baruch Spinoza. It was written in Latin. Although it was published posthumously in 1677, it is his most famous work, and is considered his " magnum opus".
The style and system of the book is, as Spinoza says, "demonstrated in geometrical order", with
axioms and definitions followed by propositions.
