From the work of Baruch d'Espinoza 1632-1677 (IFFR 1978)
From Spinoza's Ethica 82 sentences (propositions)were selected without
a strict coherence and re-assembled in seven components. Each component was filmed
four times at least, in a different setting with different actors. Spinoza's sentences
are taken as dialogues 'tout court', and not as a collection of opinions. Spinoza's style
of (philosophical) thinking is presented as an activity in the first place, which
is then revealed by each individual actor in his own way.
