Reissuing works originally published between 1927 and 1992, this collection offers excellent scholarship on Spinoza, Hobbes, Locke, Leibniz and other philosophers, covering a wide array of subjects. Political theory, ethics and education are all represented in these volumes, with one book particularly focusing on the Soviet interpretation of Spinoza’s thought. The last two texts are translations of Spinoza’s correspondence and his oldest biography. This is a comprehensive collection for a philosophy library.
