Spinoza was an important thinker and admirable person. At a time when free thought was a serious personal risk, Spinoza wrote what he believed.
In this conversation I speak with Steven Nadler about Spinoza and his philosophy. Nadler is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, author of an impressive number of books, and an expert on Spinoza. His most recent work is Think Least of Death: Spinoza on How to Live and How to Die.
