Spinozism, as reimagined in France via heterodox intellectuals corresponding to Althusser and Deleuze, was once whatever greater than a philosophy: it used to be a veritable ethos. With verve and class, Peden maps this inheritance and publications us during the bold debates that experience no longer but reached their end."—Peter Eli Gordon, Harvard college
