John Caird [1820-1898] was a Scottish theologian (Church of Scotland, Presbyterian) who, at the University of Glasgow, became Professor of Divinity in 1862 and was Principal from 1873-1898. Baruch (a.k.a. Benedict, Bento, Benedictus) Spinoza [1632-1677] was one of the most important and radical philosophers of the 17th century. He born into Amsterdam's Portuguese-Jewish community. Spinoza had controversial ideas concerning the authenticity of the the Hebrew Bible and the nature of the Divine.
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.
