Spinoza on Politics and Religion (Part Two) by Partially Examined Life

http://ift.tt/2sTqHdR

Concluding on the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus (1670) and Tractatus Politicus (1677). What’s the relationship between ethics, reason, and revelation? What could “faith” possibly mean to a hard-core rationalist like Spinoza? Is it possible to buy into the non-denominational “true religion” without believing any of the dogmas of traditional religion at all? And what kinds of limits on free speech is Spinoza committed to?
