# PHILOSOPHY /// Spinoza par les bêtes by Ariel Suhamy & Alia Daval


Spinoza par les bêtes (Ollendorf & Desseins 2008) is a French book part of a series entitled Le sens figuré which attempt to explain didactically the work of a thinker (Spinoza, Nietzsche, Foucault, Deleuze etc.) by associating text and drawings. The result for Spinoza is interesting as it originally proposes to establishes a bestiary  in the Dutch Philosopher’s writings (mostly the Ethics) and by this mean, explaining the substance of such a philosophy.

The book’s text is by Ariel Suhamy while the drawings have been created by Alia Daval. I don’t think that this series exists in English yet unfortunately.
