Review: "Spinoza's Modernity is a major, original work that reconstructs a key moment in the European Enlightenment and offers a ground-breaking reading of the intersection of German literature and philosophy in the latter half of the eighteenth century. Willi Goetschel reassesses the philosophical project of Baruch Spinoza, uncovers his influence on later thinkers, and demonstrates how that crucial influence on Moses Mendelssohn, G.E. Lessing, and Heinrich Heine shaped the development of modern critical thought."--Jacket.
