Summary/Abstract: In this paper Spinoza’s geometrical method is examined in comparison with methods of Descartes and Euclid, with intention to accentuate the unique character of this method, as it was given with Ethics. Analysis is focused on geometrical method as the method of demonstration; the geometrical method is problematized as the method for cognition and discovery, as well as the method immanent to Spinoza’s philosophy. Finally, analysis accentuates Spinoza’s relationship towards his reader, thus further revealing the meaning of the geometrical method.
