Abstract:

"This book explores the positive references to Christianity presented through out Spinoza's works, focusing particularly on the Tractatus Theologico politicus. Arguing that advocates of the anti-Christian or un-Christian Spinoza fail to look beyond Spinoza's Ethics, which has the least to say about Christianity, Graeme Hunter offers a fresh interpretation of Spinoza's most important works and his philosophical and religious thought. While there is no evidence that Spinoza became a Christian in any formal sense, Hunter argues that his aim was neither to be heretical nor atheistic, but rather to effect a radical reform of Christianity and a return to simple Biblical practices.

This book presents a unique contribution to current debate for students and specialist scholars in philosophy of religion, the history of philosophy and early modern history."--Jacket.
