Product Description

De Dijn's comprehensive introduction to Spinoza's philosophy is based on two key texts. He first provides an in-depth analysis of Spinoza's Treatise on the Improvement of the Understanding, which De Dijn characterizes as his introduction to philosophy. This notoriously difficult text is here made accessible, even in its details. This analysis is followed by a comprehensive survey of Spinoza's metaphysics as presented in his famous Ethics. De Dijn demonstrates how Spinoza's central philosophical project as introduced in the Treatise-the linkage of knowledge and salvation-is perfectly realized in the Ethics. In this way the unity of Spinoza's thought is shown to consist in his preoccupation with the "ethical" question of salvation. The book also contains introductory chapters on Spinoza's life and work, the original Latin text of the Treatise and its new English translation by Edwin Curley, and an annotated bibliography on the secondary literature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Supreme Wisdom
If you want to understand living, read Spinoza.If you want to understand Spinoza, read Wienpahl.It is that simple.Few writers have understood living better than Spinoza, and I know of no one who understood Spinoza better than Wienpahl.Wienpahl's book, like it's subject, is not simple.But it is rewarding beyond measure.

The Radical Spinoza has nine chapters and an appendix.Chapters 1-3 provide historical, biographical, and philosophical background for the core chapters.These are chapters 4-9, and they treat the core concepts in Spinoza's thought: unity (God), attributes (non-dualism), egolessness (connections with Zen Buddhism, and - in my view - Taoism), understanding (the highest form of knowing), human servitude, and human freedom.The appendix contains Spinoza's Ethic in "skeleton" form, with Wienpahl's own careful (and accurate) translation.The English is on one side, with the Latin on the other.

Wienpahl was a professor of mine at UCSB, and he was an inspirational teacher.His lessons have stayed with me all of my life, and reading The Radical Spinoza was not only a "walk down memory lane", but a re-introduction to the great man's understanding.All in all, a treat.Highly recommended. ...

Product Description
This volume explores the philosophical, psychological and political assumptions that underpin a concern for nature, offering specific suggestions on how the domination of humans and nature may be overcome. It is primarily intended as an introduction to the philosophy of ecology, known as deep ecology, and to the way Spinoza's philosophy has been put to this aim. Only a self-realization, along the lines of Spinoza's philosophy, can afford a philosophy of care which is inclusive of humans and the non-human world, which recognizes the need for civil laws and democratic politics for human flourishing. ...

Product Description
This book brings together Spinoza's fundamental philosophical thinking with his conclusions about God and religion. Spinoza was born a Jew but chose to live outside any religious community. He was deeply engaged both in traditional Hebrew learning and in contemporary physical science. He emerges not as a rationalist precursor of the Enlightenment but as a thinker of the highest importance in his own right, both in philosophy and in religion. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars logic and Spinoza
This is a readable account of Spinnoza's view on religion, but in my opinion, the Author is more interested in Logic than in Spinoza's thought. We are often served with a critic of one statement after another without any more. I have learn about religion and imagination, for instance, in Lorenzo Vinciguerra's Spinoza et le signe,Vrin, Paris, 2005.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well done
Richard Mason is a pretty sympathetic expositor of Spinoza, but he likes to get his digs in when he can. (Spinoza comes in, for example, for a little gentle ribbing on the question whether anyone can achieve blessedness without relying on Scripture. Mason suggests in a parenthetical comment that Spinoza may have thought he and Jesus were the only two people who could do so.)

Overall, this volume is an excellent exposition of Spinoza's thought about God and religion -- and it has some very interesting features. For one thing, there's a full chapter devoted to figuring out just what Spinoza thought of Jesus -- a much-neglected topic. For another, there's _another_ full chapter devoted to figuring out just what Spinoza meant by the eternality of the mind.

I find Mason very congenial on many points. For my money he outdoes both Edwin Curley _and_ Jonathan Bennett on some topics -- especially Spinoza's views on the nature of necessity. He also beats the heck out of Yovel on Spinoza's relations to religion. And at one point he offers a gentle corrective to nineteenth-century-idealistic readings of Spinoza (especially Joachim), arguing that Spinoza did think it was possible to know things short of the Absolute. (I think, by the way, that this is both correct and entirely consonant with idealism as it should be understood; in my view the British neo-Hegelians were a bit vulnerable on this point.)

Some readers may like his approach and its conclusion: that there isn't any point to digging around behind Spinoza's words looking for theological secrets; Spinoza meant just what he wrote. (Which means, among other things, that he wasn't trying either to found a new religion or to undermine any existing ones.) Straussians will disagree, of course, but frankly there seems to be little reason to apply persecution-and-the-art-of-writing standards to Spinoza's writings.

A nice addition to everyone's home Spinoza library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent discussion of Spinoza's background and metaphysics
This book is an excellent source, for those interested in the influence of the Jewish/Marrano background of Spinoza, but also for those interested in his metaphysics. The discussion on the attributes was very smooth. ... Read more

Readers of Spinoza's philosophy have often been discouraged, as well as fascinated, by the geometrical method which he employs in his masterpiece Ethics. Aaron Garrett examines this method and suggests that Spinoza intended not only to make claims and propositions but also to transform readers by enabling them to view themselves and the world in a different way. This original and controversial book will be of interest to historians of philosophy. ... Read more

Product Description
Spinoza's Theological-Political Treatise (1670) is a landmark both in democratic political theory and in the history of biblical interpretation. J. Samuel Preus highlights Spinoza's achievement by reading the Treatise in the context of a literary conflict among his contemporaries about biblical interpretation. Preus' exposition of neglected primary sources surrounding Spinoza's work offers new evidence regarding his rhetorical strategy and intent in the Treatise. The book provides not only a valuable contribution to Spinoza scholarship but an important account of the origins of modern methods of biblical interpretation. ... Read more

Product Description
Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) was one of the most important philosophers of all time; he was also arguably the most radical and controversial. This is the first complete biography of Spinoza in any language and is based on detailed archival research. More than simply recounting the story of Spinoza's life, the book takes the reader right into the heart of Jewish Amsterdam in the seventeenth century and, with Spinoza's exile from Judaism, right into the midst of the tumultuous political, social, intellectual and religious world of the young Dutch Republic. Though the book will be an invaluable resource for philosophers, historians, and scholars of Jewish thought, it has been written for any member of the general reading public with a serious interest in philosophy, Jewish history, seventeenth-century European history, and the culture of the Dutch Golden Age. Spinoza:A Life has recently been awarded the Koret Jewish Book Award.Amazon.com Review
Remarkably, given his importance in Western philosophy, therehas never been a substantial English-language biography of Baruch (or,as he was later known, Benedictus) Spinoza (1632-1677) untilnow. Spinoza: A Life makes up for the lack, delving into thearchival records of 17th-century Amsterdam to flesh out Spinoza'sworld in rich detail. The subject himself doesn't even appear untilthe third chapter; Nadler first provides historical background on thetreatment of Jews during the Spanish Inquisition and their eventualresettlement in the Dutch Republic. Later chapters explore Spinoza'srelationship to the Jewish community and the possible reasons for hisexcommunication in 1656, as well as the emergence of his philosophicalsystem. Academically rigorous without becoming ponderous, Spinoza:A Life is splendid both as biography and history, and a worthyintroduction to Spinoza's philosophy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Biography -- But Not For Everyone
"Spinoza" is an excellent biography of Baruch Spinoza, the great rationalist philosopher.Since extant biographical material on Spinoza is limited, the book gives a lot of attention to his times, not just his life.I loved the long digressions on Iberian Jewish culture, the Jewish community in Amsterdam, 17th century Dutch politics, and the rise of the Cartesian movement.However, other readers might feel overwhelmed by the arguably irrelevant details.Readers interested in philosophy might also be disappointed:"Spinoza" has great summaries of Spinoza's books, but it does not engage in real exegesis.Bottomline:I liked the book.Others might be unpleasantly surprised.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fine introduction to Spinoza and his age
Despite the paucity of source material, Steven Nadler's biography captures the essence of one of western philosophy's brightest minds.With almost nothing surviving to document his early life, the first third of the book on Spinoza's formative years is largely a history of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions, and the Jewish immigrant community of Amsterdam to which Spinoza's family fled. I hadn't expected to read so much about these topics, but Nadler's presentation proved engaging, as it did throughout the book, including accessible summaries of Spinoza's thought and his major works.This is no intellectual history, so ideas are presented in their most general outline, but for someone new to Spinoza this might be just what you need to decide whether you'd like to explore further.This was my introduction to Spinoza. It was a good place to start.

What stays with me from Nadler's work is an image of the philosopher, a young man- he died still in his 40's - content with life and his place in it.He ate enough to survive, wore enough to stay warm, and kept only a few boxes of books and the lens grinding equipment with which he earned enough money to support his low-impact life.He never married and never traveled outside the Netherlands. He was offered prestigious academic positions, but turned them down. When confronted with the disputatious, he tried to find ways to avoid confrontation.He lived a quiet, interior life of reflection.If he was hungry for anything, it was ideas, what he called the search for truth.In all other ways, he seemed at ease in the world.And why not?For Spinoza the world is the sum of the long chain of cause and effect, a world that can't be otherwise, a world of perfect imperfections.In such a world, what is there with which to contend except oneself?And this Spinoza did, cleaving true to his vision of reality, a man of admirable honesty and simplicity.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rationalist, existialist...or Vulcan?
Emotions are to be avoided, religion is inherently illogical, only rational philosophy can bring you contentment, free-will is a myth; these are the tenants of Spinoza and, yes, the credo of all Vulcans.All these years of trying to get a sense of Spinoza and 3/4 through the book the image of Mr. Spock came floating through the text. Think about it, if Spinoza was successful in changing the metaphysical paradigm of western civilization, we'd all be Vulcans today.Seriously, this is a good book for any serious Spinozists, and puts into context the genius and guts that was Spionza as well as the remarkable period of tollerance which was the golden age of the Dutch Republic.I would suggest reading Yirmiyahu Yovel's, "Spinoza and Other Heretics" for anyone interested in getting a sense of the Pre-converso environment of the Marranos.

3-0 out of 5 stars Spinoza: A life
The book give a great details about the life during the inquisition time in Spain Portugal & Holland..
Is has a very good view about the terrible consequences of fanatics in the Catholic religion, and show why the world was intellectually almost paralyzed during the dark ages of the religion terror.

However, the book only give small inside about the wonderful philosophical thinking of Spinoza, is more a historic book than a philosophical one..

5-0 out of 5 stars The most enlightened of Philosophers
Steven Nadler skillfully guides the reader not only through Spinoza's life but also through the turbulent times of the 17th century Holland. All the more useful ride to enable us to see the courage of an outstanding man, citizen, a brilliant philosopher who taught us that GOD isNature and us. Great reading! ... Read more

Product Description
Benedict (Baruch) de Spinoza has been one of the most inspiring and influential philosophers of the modern era, yet also one of the most difficult and most frequently misunderstood. The essays in this volume provide a clear and systematic exegesis of Spinoza's thought informed by the most recent scholarship. They cover his metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science, psychology, ethics, political theory, theology, and scriptural interpretation, as well as his life and influence on later thinkers.Amazon.com Review
"I do not presume to have discovered the best philosophy," Spinoza once wrote, "but I know that I understand the true one." Understanding the philosophy of Spinoza is not easy, to be sure, but The Cambridge Companion to Spinoza is intended to help. Aimed at the novice and the specialist alike, it contains 10 essays contributed by scholars who are among the foremost authorities on Spinoza's thought. "Taken as a whole," editor Don Garrett writes, "the essays in this volume present a detailed, coherent, and--I believe--accurate portrait of one of the most original and fruitful thinkers that humankind has yet produced."

The Companion is almost certainly the best anthology on Spinoza's philosophy presently available, and his major work, Ethics, is naturally at its center. Among the high points in Jonathan Bennett's compendious essay on Spinoza's metaphysics is his discussion of "size neutrality"--the claim that small things differ from large ones only in size--which is memorably described as "a blank check that philosophers wrote on Nature's bank and that did not visibly bounce until late in the 19th century." Other essays on Ethics deal with Spinoza's views on epistemology, the philosophy of science, the philosophy of mind, and--unsurprisingly--ethics. Concerning other aspects of Spinoza's work, Edwin Curley's essay, delightfully titled "Kissinger, Spinoza, and Genghis Khan," argues that Spinoza's political philosophy is essentially Machiavellian; Spinoza's contributions to theology and Bible scholarship are carefully dealt with by the late Alan Donagan and Richard H. Popkin. --Glenn Branch ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An essential aid to students of Spinoza.
This fine volume in the Cambridge "Companions" series is an essential aid to readers of Baruch Spinoza. Edited by Don Garrett, it includes ten essays on Spinoza's life and thought by ten world-classSpinoza scholars (including the late Alan Donagan, to whom the book isdedicated).

Topics covered are various and pretty much exhaustive. W.N.A.Klever opens the volume with a summary of Spinoza's life and works; theclosing piece by Pierre-Francois Moreau traces the influence of"Spinozism" from Spinoza's death through the twentieth century.The eight essays in between discuss, in turn, Spinoza's metaphysics(Jonathan Bennett), his theory of knowledge (Margaret D. Wilson), hisnatural science and methodology (Alan Gabbey), his metaphysical psychology(Michael Della Rocca), his ethical theory (Don Garrett), his politicaltheory (Edwin Curley, in a piece strikingly entitled "Kissinger,Spinoza, and Genghis Khan," in which he argues that Spinoza wasessentially Machiavellian), his theology (Alan Donagan), and his influenceon Biblical scholarship (Richard H. Popkin).

The resulting collection isa clear and thorough examination of every essential aspect of Spinoza'sthought. My recommendation to new readers of Spinoza: begin with RogerScruton's fine little book in the "Past Masters" series, and thengo on to this one. ... Read more
