Education and the theory of the affections of Spinoza in the light of the reading of Gilles Deleuze: of the moral


This work investigates the theory of affects presented by Baruch Spinoza in the light of the reading of Gilles Deleuze. The meeting with these two philosophers opens new and different perspectives to think about education and culture as well, which are less subject to the major power forces. The morality based on the ran’s impotence, in other words, in the production and investment of passive affects sad and reactive imposes values and behaviors that ultimately work very well for the subjectivities formations aligned to obedience and control. Denouncing every moral structure, Gilles Deleuze speaks of philosophy (or ethics) as an exercise of thought whose function is to drawn a line to flight. He presents Spinoza as the prince of philosophers, ethics of potency's creator that goes against the different forms of moral philosophy, based on the obligation, the duty and guilt. (AU)
