Designed to facilitate a thoughtful and informed reading of Spinoza's 'Ethics', this anthology includes the Ethics in its entirety, and Spinoza's related writings -- complete or in relevant abridgment -- along with two appendices: List of the Propositions from the 'Ethics', which helps the reader trace the development of key themes; and Citations in Proofs, a list of all the propositions, corollaries, and scholia in the 'Ethics', together with all the definitions, axioms, propositions, corollaries, and scholia to which Spinoza refers in the proofs -- thus, readers can locate, for a given item, each instance where Spinoza refers to it.
