Description

Spinoza is John Caird's contribution to Blackwood's Philosophical Classics. It is an examination of Spinoza's philosophical system. Caird's initial manuscript was much too long, consequently, the editors chose to leave out the biographical information on Spinoza. Caird followed Hegelian teaching and thusly his Spinoza is Hegelian in its approach. Please see the attached frontispiece and contents.
