Jun 22, Ruben rated it liked it Shelves: phil , spinoza. This is a solid collection of introductory essays on Spinoza. They're not going to replace actually reading the Ethics or the Theologico-Political Treatise, but they will be helpful in contextualizing and clarifying what you find there. My favorite chapters were probably those by Wilson, Garrett and Donagan, who present very rich, careful and sympathetic treatments of Spinoza's epistemology, ethics and theology respectively.

Bennett's chapter on Spinoza's metaphysics is helpful as well if, as always, pretty tendentious for the connections it draws or rather, forges between Spinoza and some topics in contemporary metaphysics. One thing to keep in mind with this collection is that it is more than 20 years old now, and that a lot has happened in Spinoza studies in the interim.
So while this still mostly holds up as a discussion of general themes, it's worth also taking a look at Koistinen's Companion to the Ethics that was published a few years back.
