Wolfson has tracked Spinoza to his lair in a work of scholarship and erudition hard to duplicate. The Philosophy of Spinoza is a commentary, frequently brilliant and revelatory, on every definition, axiom and proposition of the Ethics… He argues his thesis with persuasion and wit…and writes in a style that is a model of clarity.

No one will read his book without being stirred to enthusiasm for its rigorous comprehensiveness, its scrupulous lucidity, and the asceticism of its devotion not only to the thought of Spinoza, but to that vast learning to which Spinoza fell heir.Saturday Review
