I really like your writing from an educational point of view! If I gave philosophy lessons I‘d probably hand out your papers since they oftentimes encapsulate really well the core ideas.
As a theologian I was always fascinated with the work of Spinoza and I think you can‘t overrate his influence on postmodern theology enough. Especially in Processtheology which originates in Whiteheads Philosophy more so than in Spinoza you can find a lot of his ideas translated into the 21th century.
I think Spinoza should become more of a stable for philosophers as well as theologians since he was brilliant mind in both spheres and can be viewed as a linchpin to this very day.
Tanks for bringing him into conversation again!
