Shadur, I. M. About Empiric Meaning of the Basic Concepts in Spinozas Philosophy

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2013-9 in rubric "The rational and the irrational", pages 1200-1211.

Resume: Spinoza is thought to be the most consistent representative of philosophical rationalism. However, it does not mean that Spinoza always followed the rationalistic ideal in his philosophy. The article studies the relation of basic theoretic concepts in Spinozas philosophy to empiric interpretation of the rationalism in thinking. For this purpose, the author of the article views the empiric meaning of these concepts adopted by Spinoza from traditional theoretic philosophy and thought over in accordance with his own system of philosophy. On one hand, the study showed uncertainty or insufficient consistence of Spinozas rationality lying in the basis of these concepts. On the other hand, it has been proved that within the framework of Spinozas philosophy, those concepts admitted theoretical empiric interpretations.

Keywords: philosophy, empiric, meaning, rational, infinity, substance, scholastic, speculative, ontological, existence.
