Review from previous edition
Nadler's book is an admirable piece of work. It relates Spinoza's thought to a wide variety of contexts, each of which enriches our understanding of Spinoza. It is clearly written and highly readable, continuing the story begun in Nadler's earlier Spinoza: A Life
. It will be mandatory reading for students of Spinoza, as well as for students of Jewish thought and history more generally. (Martin Lin, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
