article (D-1) Critique spinoziste des thèses de Orléan&Lordon

Abstract : This article, while confirming the great interest of spinozist approaches to the state and the currency of A. Orléan and F. Lordon, discusses their analysis which seems to ignore The Reason. Two texts are discussed: the description on the EHESS website of F. Lordon's seminar "structuralism of passions", the article "Genesis of the State and Genesis of the Currency " of A. Orléan and F. Lordon. This article is based on article (B-2) "Fundamental Premises for any SHS" and above all on article (A-3) criticising Spinoza's Reason and introducing multiple reasons in his works. In the two texts discussed, Reason is never mentioned: on the one hand there are feelings and on the other hand human institutions (" Majuscule institutions", money, etc.). By taking up the Spinozist criteria of the "true ", both (a-) the concept of the "State of a mercantile nature", and (b-) the feelings lent to merchants, to explain the supposed things put in place are not proven propositions, in the sense given in Ethics, but premises to be accepted or rejected .... according to our own feelings as readers. For our part, we accept them with pleasure. We accept them more easily because we will then replace the Reason according to Spinoza with the reasons we propose in the article (A-3) criticising Spinoza's Reason and introducing multiple reasons in his works, before mobilising them to better document the spinozist intuitions of these two authors.
