Discover Spinoza's philosophy of ratio, from geometry and reason to bodies, affects and architectureFrom his geometrical method to his geometrical examples; from his doctrine of reason to his explanation of bodies in motion; and from his account of the affects to his understanding of social relations, ratio is of prime importance in Spinoza's philosophy. These essays explore the surprisingly varied dimensions of this unacknowledged keystone of Spinoza's thought. They take you from Spinoza's geometrical diagrams to his concepts of mind, body, the emotions, and the cosmos. It shows how Spinoza's thinking about ratio influences the concept of proportion in 'Gulliver's Travels', the differential ontology of Deleuze, egalitarian design for wellbeing, and the notion of an affective architecture.Key FeaturesThe first major work to explore ratio as a key concept of Spinoza's thoughtReveals that ratio is a multi-faceted concept that connects geometry, minds, reason, bodies, social relations and the cosmos in Spinoza's philosophyShows how ratio can be used to address enduring questions in Spinoza's thought and take his philosophy in exciting new directionsOffers new applications of Spinoza's thinking to architecture, design and urban studies ContributorsThe first major work to explore ratio as a key concept of Spinoza's thoughtReveals that ratio is a multi-faceted concept that connects geometry, minds, reason, bodies, social relations and the cosmos in Spinoza's philosophyShows how ratio can be used to address enduring questions in Spinoza's thought and take his philosophy in exciting new directionsOffers new applications of Spinoza's thinking to architecture, design and urban studies ContributorsSimon B.
