'... there are some very illuminating aspects of this book.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy 'In his book, Meaning in Spinoza's Method, Aaron Garrett's guiding aim is to investigate the connections between method and content in Spinoza's philosophy, and the results are stimulating and often surprising. ... I would say that this book is the most sustained and historically illuminating treatment of Spinoza's method of which I am aware. The range and depth of Garrett's survey of philosophers who influenced or may have influenced Spinoza on method is very impressive. ... [an] illuminating and fertile account of Spinoza's method.' Mind 'For many readers, the most admirable thing about this admirable book will be its successful depiction of Spinozism as a brilliant synthesis of competing pressures in early modern thought.' Journal of the History of Philosophy
