English commentary: "...although Spinoza's understanding of the social communication of the passions shows some striking similarities to details of Hume's account, it is unlikely that Spinoza was a genuine influence on, much less model for Hume's particular account, since his views were transmitted to Hume mainly through Bayle's 'Dictionary'." (p. 257)
