    Baruch Spinoza was one of the most important and controversial thinkers of the 17th century. He rejected both the mind-body dualism of Descartes and traditional religious views, which got him violently attacked for atheism while he was actually seeking to redefine God as the whole of the laws of Nature. His metaphysics are a brilliant attempt to reconcile human freedom with a belief in scientific explanation, and his Theological-Political Treatise, the first argument for democracy by a major philosopher, contributed as much as the Declaration of Independence or Thomas Paine's Common Sense to modern liberal, secular, and democratic thinking.

    "Le Prince des philosophes" selon Deleuze, un "précurseur" selon Nietzsche ; d'après Hegel, "l'alternative est : Spinoza ou pas de philosophie". Penseur hollandais et figure incontournable de la philosophie, Spinoza a été pris à tort pour un auteur athée. En réalité, il critique les positions traditionalistes des religions révélées, pour proposer une religion traditionnelle. On dit de Spinoza que, victime d'une tentative d'assassinat, il aurait conservé le manteau troué par le poignard pour se rappeler que la passion religieuse mène à la folie.
