Spinoza's Book of Life by Steven B. Smith
Book DescriptionSmith's book treats the famous "geometrical method" of the "Ethics" as a form of moral rhetoric, a model for the construction of individuality. It also presents the "Ethics" as a companion to Spinoza's major work of political philosophy, the "Theologico-Political Treatise", each work helping to explore the problem of freedom. Affirming Spinoza's centrality for both critics and defenders of modernity, the book should be of value to students of political theory, philosophy and intellectual history.
