Baruch Spinoza

Baruch Spinoza

Without intelligence there is not rational life: and things are only good, in so far as they aid man in his enjoyment of the intellectual life, which is defined by intelligence. Contrariwise, whatsoever things hinder man’s perfecting of his reason, and capability to enjoy the rational life, are alone called evil.


Baruch Spinoza, Ethics, Demonstrated in Geometrical Order (1677), Part IV, Appendix V.
