Spinoza is an immortal contributor to the Western Heritage. He charges humankind to 'know thyself' which to Spinoza means 'know thy world' and 'know thy God'. Spinoza is surrounded, nay, subsumed by the Divine. Before Spinoza God was an inscrutable mystery, residing in an extra-terrestrial realm. After Spinoza we know God as a presence inseparable from the material world, life, and all deed. The print is clear, the accessibility made possible by generosity is commendable. Spinoza should be introduced to new generations of seekers and thinkers.

Description: Silver tabby with green eyes and a black tail. Has a hairless patch on her foot because of a fight in kithood.<p> Backstory: She was born with the name Silverkit and had a sister named Pinekit. They were apprenticed together, and their mentor was Thistlefur. At one point, Pinepaw went savage and tried to kill Thistlefur. Silverpaw leaped in to help and was bitten furociously by her sister on her foot. Thanks to her help, Thistlefur survived the attack with only a scratched ear. Unfortunately, Silverpaw's foot never completely healed, and it left a furless patch there. Pinepaw was cured shortly after the incident, and became an experienced warrior. Although Silverpaw limped, she was still extremely agile and strong. She was made a warrior early. Her new name was ironically Silvertail, even though her tail is the only part of her that is not silver. When the deputy Shadestorm died, Silvertail became the new deputy. The leader then was Goldenstar, one of the greatest Moonclan leaders of all times. He was extremely fair, and never wasted his lives. One day, he disappeared. Clues led us to believe that a twoleg captured him. Silvertail became the leader and continues to lead today.<p> Personality: Bright and cheery. Very smart, but does not show off.<p> Strength: Extremely agile, good at decision-making.<p> Overall rating: &star &star &star &star &star <p> Great leader!
