Books: The Spinoza Problem

Perhaps the biggest problem with Spinoza is that he is surely, slowly being forgotten, neglected and undervalued for  the philosopher he was and the contributions he made to just plain questioning and thinking.

Irvin Yalom, a psychologist who writes novels, attempts apparently to not only understand and analyze Spinoza, but his antithetical other, Alfred Rosenberg, a thoroughly anti-Semitic tyrant of Hitler's Nazi regime in a new piece of fiction.

However, I reviewed my "book wish list" and if I add another book the cart will topple over and hit me in the head.
