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.
