German commentary "'Desiderium' defined as sadness in the absence of what we love, can ... become an engine of history and set the multitude in motion towards a search for satisfaction.
By introducing this new motive for unity in the 'Political Treatise', Spinoza therefore continues the political reappropriation of sad affects and puts them in the service of a greater power, for the greatest joy of all." (p. 92)
