Benedictus de Spinoza
Edited and translated by Edwin Curley

His translations are both philosophically astute and readable, while his notes inform the reader of the latest results of textual scholarship. Furthermore, his multilingual glossary-index is an invaluable guide to Spinoza’s often idiosyncratic vocabulary. This is an edition of Spinoza for the ages: students and scholars will be reading Curley’s Spinoza for many years to come."--Daniel Garber, Princeton University
