According to Spinoza, God is the only substance, which produces itself in each particular think of Nature. Human being seems to have no other role but as a part of it. In this work it is shown how the concepts of Conatus and Multitudo introduce in the Spinoza’s thought an anthropological dimension, in which human being appears as a phenomenon in a double sense: he is a part of Nature and, at the same time, Nature manifests itself to him. From the ontological level of Conatus to the birth of Civitas, Spinoza's Ethics is crossed by this anthropological tension.

Abstract

According to Spinoza, God is the only substance, which produces itself in each particular think of Nature. Human being seems to have no other role but as a part of it. In this work it is shown how the concepts of Conatus and Multitudo introduce in the Spinoza’s thought an anthropological dimension, in which human being appears as a phenomenon in a double sense: he is a part of Nature and, at the same time, Nature manifests itself to him. From the ontological level of Conatus to the birth of Civitas, Spinoza's Ethics is crossed by this anthropological tension.
