Welcome everyone. Necessarily Eternal is both a catalog of recent scholarly works on Spinoza and a blog meant for articles and all other Spinoza-related things; though every once in a while I might post something completely unrelated.
My hope is that not only will this site be helpful to scholars and philosophers who happen to be doing research on Spinoza, but it will also serve as a medium of online discussions on Spinozistic philosophy, and maybe even on some early modern and medieval philosophy as well.
In addition to that, I fancy that this site would fare much better with the participation of scholars and philosophers in the academic community, especially since my inquiry into philosophy (Spinozistic or otherwise) is - my passion nothwithstanding - completely amateurish. As such, I encourage those professionals who have something to say or discuss about Spinoza, early modern philosophy, or even medieval philosophy - but do not quite possess a ready medium to do so - to consider to have their piece posted here at Necessarily Eternal. I will also gladly post any philosophy-related announcement.
Articles and book reviews published between 2001 and 2005 can be found on the site's top left column, immediately below the picture of Spinoza. The lists will be constantly updated as more materials are discovered. I am holding back the ones from 2006, pending possible changes in posting format based on suggestions and comments from the readers. I shall try not to wait too long before they will be posted; and once they are, those from 2007 will immediately follow as soon as I become aware of their existence. I will be very grateful for any help with the notification about newly published materials, or about older materials that can be added to the existing posts. Currently, there is no plan on listing systematically the materials from pre-2001, although I have not ruled out its possibility in the future.
People under the Spinoza Scholars section on the site's top right column are those who list Spinoza as their area of specialty, or those who are well-known in the area. This section should grow accordingly as no doubt the list is far from complete.
All comments, critiques, and suggestions will be very much welcomed. My email is perigord at ufl dot edu.
