Can We Deduce Our Way to Salvation?

'A new book suggests that modern readers can still follow the path of reason that Spinoza traced to true well-being, but they might not want to.' Carlos Fraenkel reviews Think Least of Death: Spinoza on How to Live and How to Die, by Steven Nadler, at Boston Review.

"In a new book on Spinoza’s ethics, Steven Nadler argues that Spinoza 'fits well in this broad eudaimonistic tradition.'"

See Spinoza, Ethics, in Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volume 31, and (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 28.
