Steven Nadler – Spinoza

May 22, 2023

Spinoza was one of the greatest moral philosophers, political and religious thinkers and social critics of his time. Yet he was vehemently excommunicated from his Jewish community and synagogue. What did he do to deserve that? On this episode of Inquiry, we welcome back STEVEN NADLER. He is Vilas Research Professor, the William H. Hay Professor of Philosophy, and affiliate professor of art history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He will be talking about his book SPINOZA: A LIFE (SECOND EDITION).
