Like Descartes, Spinoza regards thought and extension as attributes. Unlike Descartes, Spinoza holds that there is an “inﬁnity of attributes” including thought and extension. For Spinoza, the other attributes are unknown to human beings (Letter 64). I will not focus on this difference between Descartes and Spinoza in what follows. The difference I want to focus on instead emerges from some of the ways Spinoza applies the deﬁnition of attribute. Just as Descartes does, Spinoza rules out any kind of conceptual connection between attributes.
On this basis, Spinoza presented a new account of the relation between the state and religion, according to which religious authorities were to be subservient to the rulers of the state and freedom of thought and speech were seen as essential to the well-being of the state. The hostile reception of this work eventually convinced Spinoza that he could not publish his most comprehensive philosophical statement, 32 Spinoza’s Understanding and Understanding Spinoza the Ethics, in which he articulates his extremely rationalist system which denies any role for a transcendent creator and denies any sharp separation between human beings and the rest of nature.
But the situation seems to worsen day by day, and I am not sure what to do about it. (Letter 68) Spinoza decided, in the end, not to publish the Ethics and turned, in the months before his death, to work on the Political Treatise (Tractatus Politicus) which was intended to explain how states of different kinds can be made to operate successfully. Spinoza planned to discuss the nature of monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy, but unfortunately the treatment of democracy was left largely unﬁnished: this was the book Spinoza was working on at his death.
