Good over view of Spinoza
Gives a brief overview of Spinoza's up bringing and formative years and then delves into the philosophy he espoused in his writings. Poets loved him and religious leaders despised him. Atheist, pantheists, and deeply religious believers have all tried to claim him as their own. Though he speaks of God he seems to be talking more of the God of Einstein and Hawking. He Attacked scripture and made the argument that they were just morals to live by only and not divine. The book then covers his theories of modes of thought including Imagination, reason, and intuition. A significant amount of incite on Spinoza in such a small volume.

Spinoza, a unknown phylosopher for most people
If you could sum up Baruch Spinoza in three words, what would they be?
Great and independant mind. Search for happiness in a world that has no purpose to serve us but to exist.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The narrative is definetely good but slightly too fast to appreciate all the details of the text.
