Fortunately for Spinoza, he lived in Holland, which at the time featured the least intolerant variety of Christianity.
Damasio has championed the idea that human consciousness and other psychological phenomena – emotions and feelings especially – aren’t rooted primarily in the antonoi, but instead are shaped by physiological processes going on throughout the whole body.
