Summary "Daniel Davies and Charles H. Manekin Moses Maimonides is the prism through which medieval Jewish philosophy is often viewed and a reference point or inspiration for much Jewish philosophy today. Despite the abundance of Maimonides studies that regularly emerge, there is room for a new volume that addresses issues bearing on his philosophy and its varied interpretation, which continue to develop in sometimes surprising ways. This volume collects essays that are relevant particularly to interpretations of Maimonides' philosophical arguments and legacy"-- Provided by publisher
