Through an in depth examining of Leo Strauss and numerous modern Jewish thinkers, such as Jean-Claude Milner and Benny Levy (Sartre's final secretary), Spinoza: the Ethics of an Outlaw aptly delineates the typical explanation for Spinoza's modern censors: an specific hatred of cause and its emancipatory strength. Spinoza's radical heresy lies in his rejection of any and all blind adherence to Biblical legislation, and in his plea for the liberty and autonomy of concept. Segré reclaims Spinoza as a loyal interpreter of the progressive strength contained in the previous Testament.

"Science fiction movies have warned for many years: the purveyors of medical applied sciences could promise a better and happier world, yet in a tradition bereft of orientation to goodness past ourselves, they could in simple terms provide different worlds--crafted at their whim, and infrequently morally harmful and profoundly unsatisfied. those pleasant essays, by means of clarifying that caution throughout the lens of vintage ethical psychology, ship us again to these nice motion pictures with new eyes and, extra importantly, refreshed hearts for goodness."
