Spinoza and the Radical Enlightenment
Location: IAS Seminar Room, Millburn House
You are cordially invited to take part in a graduate seminar exploring 'Spinoza and the Radical Enlightenment', led by IAS Visiting Fellow Professor Margaret Jacob. Prof. Jacob is Distinguished Professor of History at UCLA and a renowned scholar of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The seminar will explore the topic through selected readings from Spinoza's Tractates and Ethics. It will take place on Tuesday, 2 March, 3-5 in the IAS Seminar Room, Millburn House.
The reading can be collected, free of charge, from the English Department office. I would also draw your attention to Prof. Jacob's lecture, 5:00, Wednesday 3 March, H545: The Radical Enlightenment Reconsidered. This lecture will be followed by a wine reception in the Graduate Space.
Please mark these events in your diaries and I hope many of you will be able to attend this rare opportunity to explore some formative ideas of the early modern period with our IAS Visiting Scholar.
