Spinoza and the Specters of Modernity draws new theoretical conclusions from a study of Spinozas legacy in the age of Goethe and beyond, largely transmitted through the writings of Herder, that will have implications for the study of German intellectual history and, more broadly, the study of Religion and Literature.

Michael Mack develops a cultural theory based on that legacy. By legacy, Mack refers to the ways in which a person s thought impacts on, rather than merely influences, contemporary thought.Spinoza and the Specters of Modernity describes how a line of writers and thinkers re-configured Spinozas ideas and how these ideas thus became effective in society at large.

The legacy of Spinoza is important because he was the first thinker to theorize narrative as the constitutive fabric of politics, identity, society, religion and the larger sphere of culture. Indeed, Mack argues for Spinozas writings on politics and ethics as an alternative to a Kantian conception of modernity.
