Ethics is a philosophical book written by Baruch Spinoza. It was written in Latin. Although it was published posthumously in 1677, it is his most famous work, and is considered his magnum opus.
The style and system of the book is, as Spinoza says, "demonstrated in geometrical order", with axioms and definitions followed by propositions.
