Abstract

This paper was based on Spinozian affections, mainly on the encounter with his book Ethics, published after his death, in 1677. Throughout the discussion, subject Education does not appear as an explicit concern, but seeks to reflect on life by means of the body in immanence mode, the knowledge of which is the most powerful of affections. By understanding that life is also made through education, we sought to establish a relationship between body, mind, knowledge, affection and education, having as main reference the work mentioned by Spinoza in the articulation of Deleuze's readings about him. For this purpose, the mapping of the body-mind, life and affections concepts was carried out. By means of encounters, whose natures of affections are either favorable to increase their power of being and acting, or to decrease them. The results show that the body is not a module governed only by the cognitive dimension guided by synaptic reactions, induced by response stimuli, but by the body-mind articulation, inseparably. It is concluded that in the Education process, be it in school or in the world of life, the student body needs to be involved in adequate, joyful encounters, which increase their power of being, thinking and acting, whose essence of being can be expressed in the transition from the first to the second genre with a view to the third genre of knowledge, which also corresponds to concern with life in its essence.
