This text investigates the relationship between human freedom and that of God in Spinoza. Human and divine freedom are understood univocally only within speculative science, in which adequate ideas of the human mind are the same ideas God entertains. On the other hand, knowledge of moral values in regard to practical action always implies a certain degree of inadequate knowledge of things and of oneself. Hence, God does not share moral values. Human mind itself, when it achieves the eternal dimension of adequate knowledge, is beyond practical virtues.

Abstract

This text investigates the relationship between human freedom and that of God in Spinoza. Human and divine freedom are understood univocally only within speculative science, in which adequate ideas of the human mind are the same ideas God entertains. On the other hand, knowledge of moral values in regard to practical action always implies a certain degree of inadequate knowledge of things and of oneself. Hence, God does not share moral values. Human mind itself, when it achieves the eternal dimension of adequate knowledge, is beyond practical virtues.
