Leibniz judged Spinoza to be an outstanding microscopist. However, the German philosopher awarded the major honours to three other men, namely Jan Swammerdam, Marcello Malpighi, and Antony van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723). The lastmentioned has emerged as the most remarkable in his field. Leeuwenhoek is reported to have constructed hundreds of single-lens microscopes, using a secret (and relatively simple) technique for making lenses, a technique which afforded a greater magnification than competitors could achieve. Leeuwenhoek expressed a low opinion of amateurs or gentlemanly hobbyists, crediting that only one in a thousand was properly suited to the vocation. Spinoza must have been the rare exception, to judge from some contemporary reports (Shepherd 2005:278). He was also earlier in time than many of the other amateurs.
Professional ethics in the construction industry - Essays…
As to whether such a society could be achieved 'within' a capitalist framework, there are obviously large questions attached to what is defined as capitalist; but even so, this remains a difficult question.49 In any case, from a Left Bio perspective, capitalism and socialism are two sides of the same coin: two different aspects of, and responses to, the same process, whose proper name is industrialism.50 The properly socialist end of the spectrum is the more humane and intelligent (potentially, at least!), and is therefore to that extent preferable, but both are anthropocentric, sharing the same blind spot regarding nature. Adherents of Left Bio retain that preference but no longer believe that all 'our' problems are resolvable within an anthropocentric ambit - or that human problems are the only ones that matter.

BARUCH SPINOZA, RATIONALIST PHILOSOPHER
The Furnishings and Interiors major at the University of Georgia is a rigorous program of study designed for students serious about understanding and enhancing the built environment. It prepares students to successfully complete projects ranging from minor renovations to new construction with a focus on residential interiors. Through an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach, students are challenged to create innovative design solutions and impart design skills and knowledge in areas including:
Adirondack Physical and Occupational Therapy
Students take a sequence of design, upper-level required, and elective courses that cover cutting edge topics such as Lasers and Photonics, Nano-electronics, and Machine Vision, choosing one of three areas of specialization: 1) Electrical Power Systems - the monitoring, analysis, and control of systems that generate, transmit and use electrical power; 2) Applied Microelectronics - analysis and design of microelectronic devices with emphasis on nano-systems and photonics; or 3) Industrial Automation and Control - the application of principles, methods, and tools for optimization and control of dynamic systems and processes.

These academic disputes were succeeded by the more radical deliberations of Karl Marx (1818-83). The Marxist version of Spinoza tended very much to a materialist complexion. This has been the subject of some ingenious interpretations, e.g., . Engels referred to Spinoza as "the splendid representative of dialectics," and in 1920s Communist Russia, "the different philosophical camps (mechanists and dialecticians) each constructed an image of Spinozism and its place in the history of thought that brought comfort to their own positions" (Moreau 1996:426).
