"The Marrano of reason traces the origins of the idea of immanence to the culture of Spinoza's Marrano ancestors, Jews in Spain and Portugal who had been forcibly converted to Christianity. Yovel uses their fascinating story to show how the crypto-Jewish life maintained by generations of Marranos in the face of the Inquisition had mixed Judaism and Christianity in ways that undermined both these religions and led to rational skepticism and secularism."
"The Adventures of Immanence unveils the presence of Spinoza's philosophical revolution in the work of later thinkers who helped shape the modern mind."
Offered as a two volume set.
