Author : Yalom, Irvin D. Separated in history by years, the lives of philosopher Baruch Spinoza and Nazi propagandist Alfred Rosenberg intertwine in fascinating and unexpected ways. Based on the historical lives of both men, psychiatrist and novelist Irvin D. Rosenberg wonders how the greatest modern Germanic writer could find value in the writings of an exiled Jew. It becomes a search for understanding of place in a world torn by rigid identity distinctions and unyielding out-group warfare.
