Spinoza and Moral Freedom guides the reader through Spinoza’s principal ideas and powerful lines of reasoning, clearing up obscurities along the way, while acknowledging the genuine difficulties and gaps. At the same time, it neither intrudes the author’s own beliefs and personality upon the reader nor gives instructions on what the reader’s own final judgment should be. What Kashap offers is pure Spinoza, rather than a Spinoza reformed in light of another person’s wishes or preoccupations. In this respect, Kashap’s approach is refreshingly new and unique. The style is graceful and lucid, and in no way obscured by philosophical jargon.
