    The end of the Second World War in Europe is one of the 20th century's most iconic moments. It is fondly remembered as a time when cheering crowds filled the streets, danced, drank and made love until the small hours. These images of victory and celebration are so strong in our minds that the period of anarchy and civil war that followed has been forgotten. Across Europe, landscapes had been ravaged, entire cities razed and more than thirty million people had been killed in the war.

    Story

    A Portuguese Jew living in Holland, Spinoza was excommunicated because of the unorthodox view he took of God. Spinoza wrote in the rationalist style of a geometric proof to develop his idea of God as the infinite, indwelling cause of all things, a unified causal system that is virtually synonymous with nature.

    If you could sum up Baruch Spinoza in three words, what would they be?

    Great and independant mind. Search for happiness in a world that has no purpose to serve us but to exist.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The narrative is definetely good but slightly too fast to appreciate all the details of the text.
