This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Hasana Sharp, Associate Professor of Philosophy at McGill University. This conversation provides detailed insights into Hasana Sharp’s book “Spinoza and the Politics of Renaturalization”, in which she offers a sophisticated new interpretation of Spinoza’s iconoclastic philosophy. Further topics include the implications of Spinoza’s naturalism to today’s world, from issues of social inequality, feminism, treatment of the elderly and the environment to animal rights, and more.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Philosophical Relevance, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:
I. Radical Beginnings - Revolutionary sympathies
II. Finding Spinoza - Investigating failed revolutions
III. The Joy of the Unknown - Naturalism, denaturalism, and the third way
IV. Modern Implications - Identity politics, animal rights and the environment
V. Philanthropic Post-Humanism - Onwards and upwards
