Read full description of the books The Philosophy of Spinoza:fortune become the enemies of the people, were brutally murdered (1672).
What happened in 1672 that led to Cornelius and Jan de Witt brutal murder? Was it a loss in a ships fortune? How can ones political fortune become enemies of the people? I do understand trade is king, but what I don't understand is the high turnover rate of the rich. What I mean by this is that these ship sailing to the West for rich & fame were highly invested by merchants & regular joes trying to make something of themselves. I could only imagine the repecussion that resulted in a ship being captured by an opposing country or by pirates, the uninformed people who lost their investments would want to blame someone for their loss. Is this similar to the 401k , Madoff, & Milkin fiasco we recently witnessed. What books will I have to read to understand this?

Read information about the authorBaruch Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher. The breadth and importance of Spinoza's work was not fully realized until many years after his death. By laying the groundwork for the 18th-century Enlightenment and modern biblical criticism, including modern conceptions of the self and, arguably, the universe, he came to be considered one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy.
His magnum opus, the posthumous Ethics, in which he opposed Descartes' mind–body dualism, has earned him recognition as one of Western philosophy's most important thinkers. In the Ethics, "Spinoza wrote the last indisputable Latin masterpiece, and one in which the refined conceptions of medieval philosophy are finally turned against themselves and destroyed entirely."
Philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel said of all contemporary philosophers, "You are either a Spinozist or not a philosopher at all."
