A thorough and accessible introduction to Maimonides, arguably one of the most important Jewish philosophers of all time. This work incorporates material from Maimonides’ philosophical, legal, and medical works, providing a synoptic picture of Maimonides’ philosophical range.
  • Maimonides was, and remains, one of the most influential and important Jewish legalists, who devoted himself to a reconceptualization of the entirety of Jewish law
  • Offers both an intellectual biography and an exploration of the most important philosophical works in Maimonides’ corpus
  • Persuasively argues that Maimonides did see himself as engaged in philosophical dialogue
  • Maimonides’ philosophy is presented in a way that is accessible to readers with little background in either Jewish or medieval philosophy
  • Secondary readings are provided at the end of each chapter, as well as a bibliography of recent scholarly articles on some of the more pressing philosophical topics covered in the book
