   schema:reviewBody ""Moses ben Maimon, known to English-speaking audiences as Maimonides (1138-1204), represents the high point of Jewish rationalism in the Middle Ages and played a pivotal role in the transition of philosophy from the Islamic East to the Christian West. His greatest philosophical work, the Guide of the Perplexed, had a decisive impact on all subsequent Jewish thought and is still the subject of intense scholarly debate. An enigmatic figure in his own time, Maimonides continues to defy simple attempts at classification. The twelve essays in this volume, all by leaders in their respective fields, offer a lucid and comprehensive treatment of his life and thought. They cover the sources on which Maimonides drew, his contributions to philosophy, theology, jurisprudence, and Bible commentary, as well as his esoteric writing style and influence on later thinkers."--Jacket." ;
