Editorial Reviews


“This is not the usual sentimental and idolatrous biography, but a critical account of a man’s political ideas as they were molded by the current events of his time. We have all Spinoza’s political works but few of us know what induced him to write them. There is no longer any excuse for not knowing.” 

– George Boas, Journal of the History of Ideas

"...a careful and well documented study... a valuable addition to the literature on Spinoza."

– Marten Ten Hoor, The Journal of Politics
