Title Spinoza's individual and the role of the state in education
Author Dahlbeck, Johan
Date 2017
English abstract
There are two different interpretations of the state in Spinoza. On the one hand, the state is interpreted as an individual in a literal sense (Matheron, 1969; Zac, 1963) and on the other hand it is interpreted as an individual in a metaphorical sense (McShea, 1975; Den Uyl, 1983; Rice, 1990). Depending on what kind of individual the state is taken to be – a literal or a metaphorical – the state’s role in education varies radically. The focus of this paper is to outline some consequences of Spinoza’s political philosophy and of his metaphysics of individuation for the role of the state in education.
