As a philosopher Benedict Spinoza requires no introduction. When educator William Rabenort looked at Spinoza he saw an educator. This little book on educational theory is built on the thought of Spinoza. Rabenort covers the possibility of education and the elements of human nature on his way to an exploration of intellect. After considering the complications of personality, Rabenort arrives at the main thesis of his work, the criteria of education, based on Spinoza. Consistently cited as an essential step on the way of understanding education, this volume still fascinates with its insights.

William Louis Rabenort was a perennial educator. As a high school principal in New York, he wrote several works on educational issues, including the still widely used Rabenort’s Geography.

This book examines eleven versions of this remarkable man’s story and the heated, previously unpublished, correspondence between the Potocki clan and one of his early biographers.
