Should Nadler be more critical of Spinoza?

Joe Stack This book is not an analysis of Spinoza's philosophy or writings, so it's not necessary for Nadler to be more critical of Spinoza. Nadler describes the Dutch intellectual, religious, and political environment, what Spinoza wrote, and why that got him into trouble. Nadler, or anyone who studies philosophy, could be more critical of Spinoza (that is an element of philosophical debates, isn't it?), not just of his writings but what he could or should have done to stay out of trouble, but that Is out of place for this book. I think it would weaken this book.
