This paper presents Spinozaʼs reflection on the relationship between the concepts of slavery, conatus and desire. According to Spinoza, the man is not available at the command of others. This requires an investigation into the mode of subjection and slavery condition, defined as inability to achieve its useful and to act freely from the negative emotional constraints. In the description of slavery, and the use of historical examples that exemplify it, it is found a classical aristotelian source. The french debate in recent years focused on the political value of desire and conatus, concepts that are fundamental to interpret the condition of slavery and the domain of the minds.
