This is an auction for ETHICS by Baruch De Spinoza.

From Wikipedia:

In Ethics, Spinoza attempts to demonstrate a "fully cohesive philosophical system that strives to provide a coherent picture of reality and to comprehend the meaning of an ethical life. Following a logical step-by-step format, it defines in turn the nature of God, the mind, human bondage to the emotions, and the power of understanding -- moving from a consideration of the eternal, to speculate upon humanity's place in the natural order, freedom, and the path to attainable happiness." The style is, as Spinoza says, "demonstrated in geometrical order" with prefaces, definitions, axioms, and lemmas. These are followed by propositions that can contain notes, proofs, and corollaries. Appendices that contain explanations are also employed. This type of presentation imitates Euclid's Elements of Geometry..."
