Spinoza’s importance today turns on the distinctive way in which he argues that the flourishing of the individual relies on the flourishing of human society as a whole. In this discussion, and marking the publication of Michael Mack’s book Spinoza and the Spectres of Modernity (Continuum, 2010), leading scholars will examine and assess the recent renaissance of interest in Spinoza.
