Spinoza's Radical Theology: The Metaphysics of the Infinite (Hardcover)
This book is not available online.
The advent of modern science brought deep challenges to traditional religion. Miracles, prophecy, immortal souls, absolute morality - all of these fundamental notions were challenged by the increasingly analytical and skeptical approach of modern scientists. One philosopher, Baruch Spinoza, proposed a new theology, rooted in a close analysis of the Bible, which could fit this new science and provide a sound basis for a social order. Spinoza's Radical Theology explains the mechanics and meaning of Spinoza's ideas and how they can inform the questions with which we still struggle today.
