Ethics is one of the most unique works in Western philosophy, an attempt to handle metaphysics, theology, anthropology, and ontology through the lens of geometric proofs. Spinoza felt that the path to happiness is through reason, in the use of the mind to demystify our existence and liberate us from passions and superstitions.
Benedict de Spinoza is a key figure in Western philosophy and had a significant influence on philosophers such as Hegel, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche. Ethics is Spinoza's masterpiece, the most comprehensive summary of his thought and perspective.
The full narration of the work is preceded by a summary, which includes an overview and synopsis of the work, a biography of the author, and the historical context of the piece.
This presentation of Ethics is ideal for the sincere philosophy scholar and for anyone interested in history or metaphysics.

Honestly I was very sceptical if it would be possible to follow this difficult work of philosophy, but Joe Bianco did a marvelous job so that you really can understand the main points of Spinoza. The introduction is also quite helpful.
