Please could someone explain what I am missing here?
In Spinoza's The Ethics, Proposition V is said:
PROPOSITIO V: In rerum natura non possunt dari duæ aut plures substantiæ ejusdem naturæ sive attributi.
This is translated as "There cannot exist in the universe two or more substances having the same nature or attribute." (Trans. R.H.M. Elwes)
So my question is: how does "dari" here mean "exist", or is "exist" just added up to make that sentence more suitable for English construction so "dari" should be "to be handed over, given"? ("Do" is given as to hand over, deliver, give up, render, furnish, pay, surrender.)
