Ron Charles…as an accessible introduction to Spinoza's complex philosophy, Yalom's method has much to recommend it. Like a good teacher, he presents only a few ideas at a time and moves carefully from one to the next with frequent recapitulation…The conversations he creates give a lovely sense of the philosopher's character and provide a lucid explanation of the man's major ideas about nature, free will and reason. It's enlightening to see the lines of modern secularism and scientific rationalism laid down almost 400 years ago.
