Movie Premiere Spinoza 'A Free Thinker'
Yesterday was the premiere of a movie about Spinoza. The Dutch Baruch Spinoza (1632-1672) is a revolutionary philospher who is widely known all over the earth yet almost completely undiscovered in his own country of origin, The Netherlands. This movie - a "docudrama" - is an effort to change the latter.
Benedictus de Spinoza is one of the world's greatest thinkers. He was one of the first philosophers that proclaimed that all people are equal and that everyone must have the freedom to believe, think and say what they want. This is a timeless message from a free thinker out of the 17th century.
This movie documentary by Robin Lutz effectively portrays what his philophies mean for our mordern day society. Spinoza has paved the way to a society where peace, freedom and rights are the underlying foundation, where every individual receives the opportunity to personal happiness.
