Early post-Hellenistic philosophy reached its summit in the Medieval Period, with the philosophy of Anselm and Aquinas and the poetry of Dante The Cambridge Companion to Ockham (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy).

On this interpretation, Spinoza's advice is similar to that of the French essayist Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592), who, in Essays wrote that humans should adopt the attitude of the simple, nonphilosophical person and not "have death constantly before our eyes" because "nature teaches [him] not to think of death except when he actually dies" (Zeitlin 1936, p. 208) online.
