Read this excellent piece at Contentious Centrist about Gilad Atzmon (including obligatory Arendt refrence - a particularly beautiful one).
P.S. As Will noted in the comment, I originally posted this as "Gilad Atzmon: A Spinoza for our times". I've changed it to "Gilad Atzmon: A Spinoza for our times?" Crucial difference!
P.P.S. A good Atzmon post at Judeosphere.
