In Spinoza’s political theory, Judaism and Christianity play a very important role. In particular, in the discourses we find affective dynamics expressing the real effects of imaginative perception. In this essay I try to consider the political figures of Judaism and the difference inaugurated by the Christian message. The latter, in fact, allows to think a universal political theory, putting some important question to Spinoza’s political theory, facing – by a more general point of view – the problem of the universal human nature. I will follow the way in which the teaching of Jesus Christ disrupts the discourse concerning the divine election of the Jewish people; this turning point will displace the political enquiry to the field of human nature, and will lead us to question Spinoza’s theory on this point.
