Dure boeken op komst over #Spinoza


Ik meld hier maar vast dat er weer enige – dure - Spinoza-turven gaan verschijnen.

Jack Stetter & Charles Ramond (Eds.), Spinoza in 21st-Century American and French Philosophy: Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, Moral and Political Philosophy. Bloomsbury Academic, febr. 2019 - 400 pages [£117.00 ;  $167.20, volgens Amazon]

Over the last few decades, Spinoza scholarship has developed in the United States, providing new perspectives on the work of this major philosopher. Spinoza in 21st-Century American and French Philosophy unites for the first time French and American scholars in conversation with each other and illustrates the fecundity of bringing together analytic and Continental scholarly traditions.

Spinoza in 21st-Century American and French Philosophy gives readers a unique opportunity to discover the most consequential and sophisticated aspects of American and French Spinoza research today. Featuring chapters by American scholars with French experts responding to these, the book is structured according to the themes of Spinoza's philosophy, including metaphysics, philosophy of mind, moral philosophy and political philosophy. The contributions consider the full range of his work, with chapters addressing the Ethics, his ideas on individuals and community, and the nature of embodiment, among other topics.




Dit boek zal, naar ik vermoed, de uitwerking worden van het in juni 2016 aan de Université Paris 8 - Vincennes Saint-Denis, gehouden Colloque International "Spinoza France États-Unis" [cf. academia.edu en PDF]

Cf. daarover de blogs van 25-05-2016 l’Université Paris 8 Vincennes, COLLOQUE INTERNATIONAL SPINOZA FRANCE ÉTATS-UNIS 
 
en 18-06-2016 De lezingen van 't Colloque International Spinoza France États-Unis staan online
 




Volgens planning zal in november 2018 bij CUP verschijnen:

Justin Steinberg, Spinoza's Political Psychology. The Taming of Fortune and Fear. Cambridge University Press, nov. 2018 [$ 105.00; zie ook Amazon]

Spinoza's Political Psychology advances a novel, comprehensive interpretation of Spinoza's political writings, exploring how his analysis of psychology informs his arguments for democracy and toleration. Justin Steinberg shows how Spinoza's political method resembles the Renaissance civic humanism in its view of governance as an adaptive craft that requires psychological attunement. He examines the ways that Spinoza deploys this realist method in the service of empowerment, suggesting that the state can affectively reorient and thereby liberate its citizens, but only if it attends to their actual motivational and epistemic capacities. His book will interest a range of readers in Spinoza studies and the history of political thought, as well as readers working in contemporary political theory.

 In ieder geval nuttig om te weten.
