The Spinoza Web

*A very rich resource for Spinoza’s biography, texts, and connections to people and places. Launched on 27 November 2016 by a research team based out of Utrecht University’s Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. ‘The Spinoza Web’ is an open-access website that seeks to make Spinoza’s life, thought, and networks accessible to a wide range of users from interested novices to advanced scholars. The beta release notably features a ‘Timeline Experience’, which tells the story of Spinoza using rich graphic and other supporting material. The ‘Database Search’ is a gateway to an enormous repository for the study of Spinoza. The goal is eventually to assemble all first-hand documentation pertaining to the philosopher for the use of the worldwide scholarly community.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Shea Robison. I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for East Asian and Comparative Philosophy (CEACOP) at the City University of Hong Kong. With support from the John Templeton Foundation, CEACOP has recently the Oneness Project, about the concept of Oneness in the East and the West. A number of international conferences have already been held, with another scheduled for May 2016.

    As part of this project I have recently started a site similar to this one at We are looking for contributions from people working on Oneness-related ideas, so I am reaching out to the Spinoza Research Network to invite anyone who might be interested to take a look. I am currently working on a project of my own involving Spinoza, the emerging science of epigenetics, and the concept of Oneness (, so I know how well Spinozist thought coincides with the concept of Oneness, and I am excited at the opportunity to connect with an ongoing community of Spinoza scholars.

    As you can see from the site, though, we are interested in contributions from across the spectrum of fields, from political theory to psychology to the life sciences and public policy. If you are working on any ideas in any of these areas and are interested in connecting with an emerging community of scholars, please visit the site and get in touch with me.

    Thank you
