Book Description

Benedict de Spinoza [1632-1677] is among the most fascinating and the most controversial of Western philosophers. These volumes provide a comprehensive selection of high quality critical discussions of his philosophy published in, or translated into English since 1970.
The collection is designed to allow current debates on key themes to be followed through in depth. At the same time, the selection and organisation of the articles give readers an appreciation of the diversity of philosophical approach and interpretation that characterises recent Spinoza scholarship.
