Alternate title:Great philosophers Spinoza and Leibniz
Spinoza and Leibniz
Summary:Anthony Quinton discusses the ideas of rationalist philosophers Spinoza and Leibniz. Examines Spinoza's belief in a pantheistic God who has matter and mind as two attributes, and who is the ultimate substance and explanation of the world. Also looks at how Leibniz sees the world as an infinity of things spritual, where everything is a phenomenon.
