Spinoza for Our Time: Politics and Postmodernity

Negri, Antonio,

9780231160469 - Spinoza for Our Time: Politics and Postmodernity

Artikelomschrijving

Antonio Negri, one of the worlds leading scholars on Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) and his contemporary legacy, offers a straightforward explanation of the philosophers elaborate arguments and a persuasive case for his ongoing relevance. Responding to a resurgent interest in Spinozas thought and its potential application to contemporary global issues, Negri demonstrates the thinkers special value to politics, philosophy, and related disciplines. Negris work is both a return to and an advancement of his initial affirmation of Spinozian thought in The Savage Anomaly. He further defends his understanding of the philosopher as a proto-postmodernist, or a thinker who is just now, with the advent of the postmodern, becoming contemporary. Negri also connects Spinozas theories to recent trends in political philosophy, particularly the reengagement with Carl Schmitts political theology, and the history of philosophy, including the argument that Spinoza belongs to a radical enlightenment.
