There is some further reading suggested here: If you want to dive deeper the recent work of Marko Malink is the cutting edge. I'd also recommend Jonathan Barnes on the Posterior Analytics.

Well I am not really a Spinoza expert but I think that Avicenna's views on God are very different from his, except the strong association between God and necessity. As you say, Spinoza's God is more immanent, Avicenna's is transcendent and a wholly different kind of being.

Philosophy started in Ancient Iraq among the Chaldeans, says Farabi (d. 950 AD). Philosophy started in Ancient Greece with Anaximander and Pythagoras, says Diogenes Laërtius (d. fl. 3rd AD).

the latest from my : "Doctors are working harder. Nurses are working harder. Grocery store clerks are working harder. Shouldn’t philosophers be caught up in the general frenzy?"
