Benedict De Sponoza(November 24, 1632 – February 21, 1677)
Benedict De Spinoza was among the most important of the post-Cartesian philosophers who flourished in the second half of the 17th century. Benedict was named Baruch Spinoza by his synagogue elders and known as Bento de Espinosa or Bento d'Espiñoza in his native Amsterdam. He is considered one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy, and one of the definitive ethicists. His magnum opus was the Ethics. His writings, like those of his fellow rationalists, reveal considerable mathematical training and ability. Spinoza was a lens crafter, which in his day was an exciting engineering field because of great discoveries being made by telescopes. The full impact of his work only took effect sometime after his death and after the publication of his Opera Posthuma. He is considered, these days, to have played a pivotal role in the preparation towards the Age of Enlightenment in the eighteenth century and to be a founder of modern biblical criticism.
