Spinoza’s philosophy symbolized universal thought. Firstly, it was the last philosophy to bring about a dialogue between Latin philosophy, Jewish philosophy and Muslim theology. Secondly, it was the intellectual center around which the three cultures that led to the seventeenth century being considered the golden century were reunited: those based on Dutch, Spanish and Scottish philosophy. Thirdly, Spinoza’s philosophy was universal in that it was the only modern philosophy to play a substantial part in that intercontinental movement which was the modern scholasticism of the seventeenth century. Fourthly, it was also universal because it traced Renaissance culture back to the two fundamental principles of Greek thought.
Keywords: Modern scholasticism, intercultural dialogue, Jewish, Latin and Muslim theology, principle of non-contradiction, nothing comes out of "nowhere".
