Review:

A wide-ranging and ambitious work that will be relevant to many interests ... the attempt of a committed scholar to do justice to this force field --Times Higher Education

'Stephen Nadler recently remarked that we are in the midst of a Spinoza revival. If Michael Mack is to be believed, based on the strong case presented in this ambitious and valuable book, this revival has been going on since the mid-eighteenth century. [...] The range and depth of Mack's research, across philosophical, literary and theological sources, is extremely impressive, as is his ability to bring this material together to serve his core argument. [...] This book is well worth seeking out. Mack has assured Spinoza's place at the heart of an alternative history of modernity, and assured his own place in the interdisciplinary history of ideas.' --British Journal for the History of Philosophy, 6th April

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Spinoza and the Specters of Modernity draws new theoretical conclusions from a study of Spinoza s legacy in the age of Goethe and beyond, largely transmitted through the writings of Herder, that will have implications for the study of German intellectual history and, more broadly, the study of religion and literature. Michael Mack describes how a line of writers and thinkers re-configured Spinoza s ideas and how these ideas thus became effective in society at large. Mack shows that the legacy of Spinoza is important because he was the first thinker to theorize narrative as the constitutive fabric of politics, identity, society, religion and the larger sphere of culture. Indeed, Mack argues for Spinoza s writings on politics and ethics as an alternative to a Kantian conception of modernity. Seller Inventory # AAV9781441118721
