"Negri renews our understanding of Spinozism in many regards...he is authentically and profoundly Spinozist."--Gilles Deleuze
"The savage power [of Negri's interpretation] upsets the ordinary frameworks through which we understand a philosophy, and not just Spinoza's--it forces us to re-read from a reverse angle, and in place of that doctrine we thought we knew so well, fixed in the immutable catalog of systems, it leads us to discover a living thought that in fact belongs to history, to our history."--Pierre Macherey
