It is possible to form idealistic theories about both, but they are so closely identified with human behavior that their practical nature is always in the foreground.

It is customary to distinguish between two main factions in early modern epistemology: the empiricists on the one hand and the rationalists on the other. The distinction can be overemphasized at the risk of falsely caricaturing the rationalists as hostile to empirical investigation, or of obscuring a complex pattern of intellectual influences back and forth between the two groups , cited: Socrates' Children: Medieval: The 100 Greatest Philosophers read here.

With respect to Spinoza, I am thinking of overviews of Spinoza's view of the passions, such as Michael LeBuffe's "The Anatomy of the Passions," in The Cambridge Companion to Spinoza's Ethics and Michael Della Rocca's "Spinoza's Metaphysical Psychology," in The Cambridge Companion to Spinoza.

In science, we begin with observations, and from these try to extract more general truths about nature. Specific observation is critical to this process, as he expresses at the very opening of the New Organon: �Man, who is the servant and interpreter of nature, can act and understand no further than he has observed in either the operation or the contemplation of the method and order of nature� (New Organon, 1.1) The Philosophical Vision of John Duns Scotus: An Introduction
