English commentary: "... it remains true that until the end of the seventeenth century Spinoza's contribution alone combined insistence on a fundamentally innovative scholarly hermeneutics based on scrupously distinguishing textual meaning from the truth of fact, with a formidable philosophical intervention reclassifying all talk of miracles, creation, and revelation as nothing more than pure, ungrounded historically conditioned asspumptions and presuppositions about nature and morality. In this respect, his contribution remains unique." (p. 198)
