English commentary: Analysis of the relation of 'potentia' and 'potestas' in Spinoza's political philosophy ; application to contemporary issues.
"... what is "different" and new in Spinoza? From a political point of view, it is simply a decisive break with a whole line of thought that emphazises... the continuity of the transcendental concept of power from Aristotle to Hobbes to Schmitt... And from another, immanent, point of view, the "difference" of the concept of 'potentia' resides in the fact that... it builts virtue from below: generosity and inner strength are always incarnated in the 'polis'. In sum, all beatitude is civic." (S. 144)
