Spinoza’s Artes Conference

SPINOZA’S ARTES

An International One Day Conference

Spinoza has long exerted a profound influence on the arts. Goethe, the Shelleys, and George Eliot acknowledged the inspirational force of Spinoza’s philosophy. On the other hand, philosophers have all but dismissed Spinoza’s views on art. Why does Spinoza fascinate artists at the same time as his view of art is neglected by philosophy? This Conference will explore the influence of Spinoza on literature, music, poetry, and theatre along with the role these arts play in the art of living well.
