Spinoza response ii.

“D2: That thing is said to be finite in its own kind that can be limited by another of the same nature

For example, a body is called finite because we always conceive another that is greater. Thus a thought is limited by another thought.  But a body is not limited by a thought nor a thought by a body”

Ethics by Spinoza 

Why is it wrong 

to compare 

two things 

of a different 

kind

if both things 

can be translated 

into mathematical 

representations?

How could 

a thought be 50

while a body is 75?

How would the rules

for the mathematical 

representation

be determined?
