Two workshops on the early reception of Spinoza’s political philosophy are organized at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
Thursday 25/11 Wiep van Bunge (Erasmus University Rotterdam) will lead a close reading of Pierre Bayle and give a talk on ‘Spinoza and his critics’. Thursday 16/12 Winfried Schöder (Philipps-Universität Marburg) will lead a close reading of Jakob Thomasius and give a talk on ‘Spinozism, Semi-Spinozism, and Anti-Spinozism in 17th and 18th century Germany’.
Each part of the workshops is freely accessible. Interested participants for the close reading will receive the text beforehand. The talks are open to a wider audience.
Please find attached a poster with further information on the workshops. Feel free to share it with friends, colleagues and students.
We are looking forward to welcome you.
