“Interpretando Spinoza”, saggi critici

Written by Foglio Spinoziano on . Posted in blog

Un testo interessante che offre opinioni degli studiosi anglosassoni più accreditati su Spinoza come Steven Nadler, Michael Della Rocca anche se con opinioni spesso estreme è questo libro che raccoglie saggi critici Interpreting Spinoza (Cambridge University, 2008). “La filosofia di Spinoza è riconosciuta sempre più per possedere una posizione di cruciale importanza e di influenza nel pensiero moderno, e negli ultimi anni è stata al centro di una ricca e crescente schiera di studiosi. In questo volume di saggi, esperti nel campo offrono una penetrante analisi del suo punto di vista su Dio, la necessità, l’immaginazione, la mente, la conoscenza, la storia, la società e la politica. I saggi trattano questioni di perenne importanza negli studiosi di Spinoza, ma anche constituiscono nuove e critiche opinioni del suo punto di vista. Gli studiosi della filosofia moderna accoglieranno questo volume come una raccolta di alcuni dei migliori e più recenti lavori svolti riguardo la filosofia di Spinoza.” (dalla Presentazione)
