"I believe in Spinoza's God, who reveals Himself in the lawful harmony of the world, not in a God who concerns Himself with the fate and doings of mankind." - Albert Einstein. The philosopher Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) was regarded as a dangerous heretic by both his Jewish community and Christians of his time. Yet he was widely regarded by his contemporaries and later historians as a man of admirable character. Much of what others considered dangerous in his thought has become part of modern secular values. This course explores Spinoza's extraordinary life and influential philosophy.
