This is a partial history of the literary topos “sub specie aeternitatis”. The Latin phrase means “from the perspective of eternity”. Eternity is the way God sees the universe, not as a succession of moments in time from past, to present, to future, but as a simultaneous present which includes the past and future as if they are already and always present. This temporal simultaneity is. Therefore, Spinoza encourages us to see things sub specie aeternitatis, that is, from the perspective of eternity. Spinoza lived a very admirable moral and simple life.

  To understand Luther, we must read the history of his life from an unconventional perspective. It is history “sub specie aeternitatis,” in the light of eternity; not in the mild glow of constant progress toward Heaven, but in the shadow of the chaos of the Last Days and the imminence of eternity. 1.   We Live For Eternity.

Sub specie aeternitatis (Latin for "under the aspect of eternity") is, from Baruch Spinoza onwards, an honorific expression describing what is universally and eternally true, without any reference to or dependence upon the temporal portions of reality. In clearer English, sub specie aeternitatis roughly means "from the perspective of the eternal".

Even more loosely, the phrase is used to. The Scholium of Proposition 29 defines sub specie aeternitatis a bit more clearly: “We conceive things as actual in two ways: either insofar as we conceive them to exist in relation to a certain time and place, or insofar as we conceive them to be contained in God.

Sub specie aeternitatis - lit., "under the aspect of eternity." When Jesus quieted the storm on the Lake of Galilee, the reason he was calm is that he was seeing the storm in a non-earthly al theologians would say Jesus saw the earthly storm sub specie aeternitatis; i.e., from the perspective of eternity.

The Quaker theologian Thomas Kelly wrote this prayer in his exquisitely. According to the philosophy of Spinoza, this would be to see the world ‘under the aspect of eternity’ (sub specie aeternitatis) and not just ‘under the aspect of time’ (sub specie durationis).

Spinoza sees the intellectual recognition of facts, impassively, without the Author: Peter Critchley. Sub specie aeternitatis (Latin for "under the aspect of eternity"), is, from Baruch Spinoza onwards, an honorific expression describing what is universally and eternally true, without any reference to or dependence upon the temporal portions of reality.

In clearer English, sub specie aeternitatis roughly means "from the perspective of the eternal". Even more loosely, the phrase is used to. He can describe them thus because he looks at them ‘sub specie aeternitatis’—in the light of eternity. A Building of God In the first ten verses of 2 Corinthians 5 the apostle sets before us the Christian’s attitude to death and the resurrection.

Sub specie durationis – under the aspect of time. Or we can look at things globally and eternally: Sub specie aeternitatis – under the aspect of eternity. Our nature means that we’ll always be divided between the two. Sensual life pulls us towards a time-bound, partial view.

(in God) – this means that scientia intuit iva is actually the perspective of eternity (sub specie æternitatis), which the human being is capable of.

Rational knowledge is, on the other hand. Eternity is a property that substance and modes have in common. Spinoza posits in E5p23 that “the human mind cannot be absolutely destroyed with the body, but something of it remains which is eternal.” Thus, men have both an indefinite existence or duration, and an eternal one.

This thesis sounds very odd because it seems to stand in contradiction to the “parallelism” between body and. Perhaps you have not been living your life “sub specie aeternitatis,” “under the aspect of eternity,” with a focus on how your actions will have repercussions for all eternity, and that you need to prepare for the coming of Christ in majesty.

Such a view point is one that most philosophers aspire towards, to see things in a sense from the perspective of God, or as Spinoza put it, sub specie aeternitatis; under the aspect of eternity. Nagel, however, notes that the objective view will sometimes conflict and.

Publication type: Book Author academic: Jaquet (Chantal) Preface writer: Matheron (Alexandre) Abstract: Humankind is eternal and short-lived. How can finite beings share eternity with God when they do not enjoy a necessary existence but rather the simple necessity of existing.

For Spinoza, t he aim of the wise should be to rise above the illusory perspective which sees things sub specie durationis to achieve that ‘absolute viewpoint’ which sees the universe as God sees it sub specie aeternitatis ('under the aspect of eternity').

Only with the intellectual love of God/Nature will human beings be truly free. This part can be enlarged by acquiring more knowledge. Adequate ideas represent their objects sub specie aeternitatis.

Because they are adequate they are in God insofar as he constitutes the human mind. That is to say, there is no ontological difference between an adequate idea in the human mind and an adequate idea in God’s mind.

Further, when history is viewed on the basis of some sort of will, being-in-the-world is considered not sub specie aeternitatis (under the form of eternity), but sub specie infinitatis (under the form of infinity), such as providence, destiny, or fate.

That being-in-the-world is viewed under the form of eternity indicates a static view of being. The famous Latin phrase that serves as the title of the sermon “Sub Specie Aeternitatis,” literally “under the aspect of eternity,” means simply “in view of eternity.” no life wisely lived, no life that is pleasing to God that is not known to be a brief life, soon over, and so a life lived with a view to the world to come, to.

"Christian wisdom views all things sub specie aeternitatis, 'in the perspective of eternity,' for all reality has its beginning in God and its final destiny in him.
