Betraying Spinoza

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

Rebecca Goldstein reconsiders the life of Baruch Spinoza--the 17th century philosopher who was excommunicated by Amsterdam's Jewish community, and whose work is now seen as a forebear of modern scientific theories...from physics to neurology. Ms. Goldstein's new biography is Betraying Spinoza.
