Abstract

In the third part of the Passions of the Soul, while enumerationg the 'particular passions', Descartes makes a precise distinction between remorse, repentance and regret. Despite this distinction, in the correspondence with Princess Elizabeth, Descartes seems to use these terms interchangeably. In this paper I will set out to analyse first of all the relationship between these 'sad passions' in Descartes. I will then extend the investigation to Spinoza in order to highlight proximities and differences between him and Descartes in the classification of these passions, in their relative remedies and political implications.
