What People are Saying About This
Mason succeeds in presenting Spinoza's thought in its extraordinary simplicity and at the same time this study is a channel for Mason to question the major tenets of the standard analytical tradition. It is clear that this is not only a book for students of Spinoza but also an intervention in contemporary analytical debates. (Herman De Dijn, Hoger Instituut voor Wijsbegeerte, Leuven)
