Antonin Scalia, Baruch Spinoza, and the Relationship Between Church and State

By Steven Goldberg


I begin with an outline of Spinoza\u27s philosophy on church and state, followed by a demonstration that Scalia is headed in the same direction. I conclude by considering how Spinoza and Scalia might react to recent litigation in South Dakota involving an excommunication from a close-knit religious community, the Hutterite Church
