If Brian Weatherson's interpretation of Descartes is correct, then it would appear that the differences between his philosophy and Spinoza's are much less than what most commentators have believed. After all, Spinoza's God seems just to have been "the mathematical structure of the world, the union of all the logical and mathematical truths", too.

Er, first, sorry for apparently being unclear; the interpretation above is mine, I have the link to Weatherson's view because it's another heterodox view about Descartes (on the Evil Genius) not because it's the same view as what I describe above.

On this making Descartes like Spinoza, that's certainly right.
