Hatred and anger, rage even. Now, at last, I have themes, I hope, or starting-points.
I have been intending for a few years to have a serious go at Spinoza's Ethics. I thought that I would need to begin at the beginning, Part I, on God, but now think that Part III, on the affects, may do it.
My anger, how can I be, if not its master, its more than equal? Can you help me, Baruch de Spinoza? I am in need of a leg up.
I will have to wait until I get home, though. I am with Paul and his family in Holland, and I haven't seen a copy in the house here.
