Book Description

The standard biography of the great seventeenth-century philosopher, now updated to draw on the latest archival discoveries, offers an engaging narrative of Spinoza's life and times and an accessible introduction to his radical ideas. Essential to scholars, it will also appeal to a broad readership interested in early modern Europe.
