An English translation of Friedrich Schleiermacher’s work on Spinozian philosophy. His translations represent a hermeneutical approach to translations and reveal an interpretation based on an extremely close reading of the text. It alleviates some of the improper usages of terms in the previous translations of Spinoza.

Reviews

“Now even Anglophone non-specialists can access these early reflections of that genius who would become the father of modern Protestant theology.”

-Prof. Julia A. Lamm,
Georgetown University
“Dr. Dinsmore’s work has a great academic value because Schleiermacher’s work on Spinoza has yet to receive attention among scholarly literature. Dinsmore opens up for the English audience the cultural, socio-historical background of the famous Pantheism-Atheism Controversy in 18th century Germany.”

-Prof. Franz Mayr,
University of Portland
