(p.1) Introduction
Affects, Actions and Passions in Spinoza

Chantal Jaquet

, Tatiana Reznichenko
Edinburgh University Press

The observation that the Spinozan model of the union of the body and mind serves as a reference point and a model in contemporary neurobiology, particularly in the works of Damasio, Changeux, and Atlan, is a starting point for a reflection on Spinoza's current popularity. The author highlights the need to go back to historical sources and re-examine the mind-body relationship on a philosophical basis, founded on an analysis of Spinoza's thought on the subject, and how it evolved over the entire corpus.

Keywords:   mind, body, Damasio, Changeux, Atlan, Spinoza
