Spinoza and Naturalism

Another link: Peter Wolfendale has a lengthy (but well worth it) discussion of Spinoza here.

Speaking of Spinoza, we’ll be doing a reading group on Spinoza’s Tractactus Theologico-Politicus at MUN during the winter quarter (if you’re in St. John’s, pop me an email and let me know you’re interested; we’re still figuring out a meeting time and place). Partly in preperation, I’ve been reading Steven Nadler’s A Book Forged in Hell: Spinoza’s Scandalous Treatise and the Birth of the Secular Age  and and look forward to getting my hands on, when I get back to St. John’s, Hasana Sharp’s Spinoza and the Politics of Renaturalization, both of which came out in the fall.
