the text with a social, philosophical, artistic, or even scientific problem, and you might find yourself unraveling it entirely. It is difficult but the concepts represent an actual capacity for life, namely, the reader, to act and think in freely. Freedom is the solution, but its not cheap. It requires rigorous comprehension of cause and effect.
Follow the detailed parallelisms of mind and body in Deleuze's account of Spinoza's work, the connection with life and death, joy and sadness, and the view is grand!

Apart from being incredibly lucid in its description, this book outlines the most fundamental aspects of Spinoza's ontology. Deleuze's choice of focus in the writing of this book, displays not only a rigorous understanding of the philosophy itself, but also a profound understanding of the application that Spinoza's ideas have to everyday life.
