Since their publications in 1982, Samuel Shirley's translations of Spinoza's Ethics and Selected Letters have been commended for their accuracy and readability. Now with the addition of his new translation of Treatise on the Emendation of the Intellect this enlarged edition will be even more useful to students of Spinoza's thought.

This review is for the Kindle Edition. Well, besides the importance of the book in the history of philosophy, this edition has a very good introduction that helps the reader to contextualize the work within its temporal framework and within Spinoza’s thought. The selected letters, though few, provide further depth to some of the themes and concepts of the Ethics. This is a good edition, for a good price.

the spinoza translations by samuel shirley are considered the best, if not standard, english versions of his works, and while a hardback edition is available which comprises everything that survives of what spinoza wrote, this paperback selected edition is perhaps superior and is certainly the most convenient. spinoza’s major work (the “ethics”) is included entire, as is the most important surviving fragment (the “emendation of the intellect”), with a judicious selection of the letters exchanged between spinoza and the few friends asking for clarification of his philosophical ideas.
