Studia Spinozana: An International and Interdisciplinary Journal

…. has already become a vehicle as indispensable to serious Spinoza studies as is Spinoza to Western thought. It is meant to continue the tradition inaugurated by the Chronicon Spinozanum in the 1920s but it is unclear what relationship (if any) it bears to the apparently faltering Cahiers Spinoza, last heard from in 1985, the year the present journal began.
Studia Spinozana is conceived in such a way as to cover the field. Each of its hefty volumes (four have appeared to date, averaging about 480 pages) is divided into six sections. The first and longest section presents a series of articles on a special theme, chosen and edited by expert editors appointed especially for that task. To date the themes have been Spinoza's Philosophy of Society (1985), Spinoza’s Epistemology (1986), Spinoza and Hobbes (1987) and Spinoza's Earlier Writings (1988) and Spinoza and Literature (1989). Spinoza and Leibniz is in press. Future issues will deal with The Ethics in the Ethics (1991), Spinoza and Socialist Theory (1992) and Spinoza’s Psychology and Social Psychology (1993).
The second section, labelled "Discussion," contains articles not bearing on the annual theme but on other aspects of Spinoza's life or thought. It is succeeded by a very useful section on "Documents," which reproduces or discusses out of print or otherwise unavailable primary materials directly pertaining to Spinoza. In this section, for example, was printed for the first time since the Opera Posthuma (1677) the 31-page index to that work, composed in all probability by Bouwmeester or Meyer.
This is followed by a section containing brief reports on Spinoza conferences and colloquia from around the world, and other information that might be of interest. [...]

Aldus Graeme Hunter in een relatief laat review in Dialogue [Volume 31, Issue 04, Fall 1992, pp 733-734, cf.]. Hier opgenomen als greep uit de geschiedenis van het internationale Spinozisme. En om de zaak van het blog  over “Waar blijft de internationale institutionalisering van het Spinozisme?” warm te houden.

Waar zou het door Graeme Hunter genoemde Spinoza and Socialist Theory  gebleven zijn?

Deze ontvriende vriend was mede-inititiariefnemer alsook co-chief editor bij/ van de eerste 14 delen, waarna ik (1995) met pensioen werd gestuurd en daarom dit project losliet.wel aardig van je, Stan, om uitgerekend mijn herpublicatie, plus inleidingkje, van de INDEX RERUM te vermelden: een nu nog steeds door de professie ten onrechte verwaarloosd document.
