THE materials which the author had prepared for this book were found greatly to exceed the limits assigned to it. He has therefore, besides other parts of his plan to which special reference need not here be made, been compelled to leave out the account of Spinoza's life and letters, and to confine the work to an examination of his philosophical system. This is the less to be regretted that the life has been so fully narrated in the recent works of Mr Pollock and Dr Martineau. These works contain, also, very able and elaborate expositions of the Spinozistic philosophy, but this book attempts to deal with that philosophy from a point of view different from that of either of these writers.

This work is the first thorough statement of Nietzsche's philosophy, and also a masterpiece of literature. The book is a combination of prose and poetry, epigrams, and parodies. Nietzsche made here his famous statement that God is dead.

What am I? Am I free or a machine? Is there a God? What is good, anyhow? What ought we to do with our lives? What is life all about? A man's first approach to philosophy is often due to the hope of finding clear answers to such questions.

The subject of this book is Nature Mysticism. The phenomena of nature are to be studied in their mystical aspects. The wide term Mysticism is used because in spite of many misleading associations it is hard to replace.
