The Courtier and the Heretic
Leibniz, Spinoza, and the Fate of God in the Modern WorldUnknown - 2006
Stewart contrasts the thinking of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716), the toast of Paris and inventor of calculus, with that of Benedictus Spinoza (1632-77), who lived in The Hague as an outcast with a day job. In their ideas he finds the seeds both of modernity and of the conflicts that still rage through it. Annotation 2006 Book News, Inc., Po
