I must admit, stumbling upon Spinoza's work was somewhat of an accident for me. I happened to be listening to a debate one day in which a secularist described him as, "one of the greatest ethicists that ever lived." Such a tall accolade intrigued me which lead me to pursue some information about this unknown man. It lead me to this book.

Describing the book, it is quite possibly one of the most abstract and difficult pieces of literature that I have tried to read and understand. Some out there may find this only moderately difficult to comprehend, to that I say good for you! But nevertheless I spent quite a few days reading each of Spinoza's propositions and thinking on them. I can happily say that the time spent on this book was well worth the effort. For the period that he grew up in, Spinoza was able to transcend his environment with his ideas about human intelligence, human bondage, god, and more.

It is such a shame that here in Midwestern America, we are never exposed to such innovative ways of thinking such as the ones Spinoza possessed.

This is not a book that you will read once, you may find yourself returning to it time and time again, for as you move through life, Spinoza's words will allow you to transcend what your environment conditions you to accept.

I won't say I'm finding Spinoza a walk in the park, but the effort required has so far been well worth it. The Wordsworth Classics edition is a very nice, easy-to-read volume with, for me, sufficiently helpful introductory material. And you can't beat the price.
