Time, Duration and Eternity in Spinoza

Chantal Jaquet

Jaquet offers a detailed analysis of time, duration, and eternity in Spinoza's works, as well as how these themes relate to each other through the entirety of his corpus. With Spinoza, she asks how it is possible for human beings, as finite modes of existence, to share in God's eternity, as well as how human existence relates to the eternity of God, or Nature.

This translation will allow English readers to closely track the concepts of time, duration, and eternity from the early Spinoza through to the last of his works. It will also situate his thought in relation to the scholastic philosophies that preceded him, all with close attention to the Latin throughout.
