Spinoza on How to Live and How to Die
September 21 , 2:00 pm
The Philosophical Society of England presents Pulitzer Prize-finalist Steven Nadler in conversation with fellow Spinoza scholar Alexander Douglas, connecting the seventeenth-century philosopher’s ideas with his life and times to offer a compelling account of how the philosopher can provide a guide to living one’s best life (and death). Nadler is the William H. Hay II Professor of Philosophy and Evjue-Bascom Professor in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. One of the world’s leading Spinoza scholars, his new book “Think Least of Death: Spinoza on How to Live and How to Die” is published in September.
