Perception in Aristotle's Ethics
by Eve Rabinoff
Publisher: Northwestern University Press 2018
Number of pages: 206
The book seeks to demonstrate that living an ethical life requires a mode of perception that is best called ethical perception. Specifically, drawing primarily on Aristotle’s accounts of perception and ethics in De anima and Nicomachean Ethics, Eve Rabinoff argues that the faculty of perception (aisthesis), which is often thought to be an entirely physical phenomenon, is informed by intellect and has an ethical dimension insofar as it involves the perception of particulars in their ethical significance, as things that are good or bad in themselves and as occasions to act.

Spinoza uses the methods of Euclid to describe a single entity, properly called both 'God' and 'Nature'. From this follow the identity of mind and body, the necessary causation of events and actions, and the illusory nature of free will.
