Important philosophical work

For any one who is trying to understand philosophy, theology, religion, etc. This is an important book. I can see how Spinoza inspired the likes of Thomas Payne, and Albert Einstein, with his appeals to reason, and the intellect.
I have it 4 stars because of the 17th century wiring style, which makes it a laborious read, but over all a very interesting book. I recommend this to any who wish to understand western philosophy.

A much tougher and boring read than expected. There were however some lightbulbs coming on now and then. May or may not read it again later in life.

Reading this has been a goal for several years and I just relocated the book that I received from an aunt decades ago. It's an original 1937 edition. WILL read this in 2010!
