His philosophy is marked by the most thoroughgoing naturalism of its period.

Many of its central tenets remain matters of debate.His commitment to the search for a comprehensive understanding of everything inspired, among others, Nietzsche, Marx, Freud, Einstein, and Althusser.

It was upon this prescient naturalistic scientific foundation that he developed a new approach to ethics.Yet the last words in the Ethics sound a note of caution, even of warning: All things excellent are as difficult as they are rare.
