Sharp makes use of Spinoza to stipulate a pragmatic knowledge of “renaturalization,” displaying how rules, activities, and associations are by no means in basic terms items of human goal or layout, yet results of the advanced relationships between usual forces past our regulate. This loss of a metaphysical or ethical department among humanity and the remainder of nature, Sharp contends, offers the foundation for a moral and political perform loose from the tendency to view ourselves as both gods or beasts.
