This pioneering guide to Maimonides incorporates material from his philosophical, legal, and medical works, thus providing a synoptic picture of the philosophical views of one of the most important Jewish thinkers of all time. The book covers a broad range of topics, including divine predication, proofs for the existence of God, Maimonides' theory of creation, prophecy and miracles, the problem of evil and divine providence, moral theory and the rationality of the law. This volume is an invaluable resource for readers with an interest in Medieval Philosophy, Jewish Philosophy, and those coming to Maimonides for the first time.
