The great Irish writer Samuel Beckett stated that Geulincx, with his emphasis on the powerlessness and ignorance of the human condition, was a key influence on his works. This is the first complete version of the text to appear in a modern language. It includes the full text of the Ethics and Beckett's notes to his reading of Geulincx.Shedding new light on important moments of intellectual history, it is a major event for students of philosophy and literature.
