The Guide for the Perplexed By Moses Maimonides

The Guide for the Perplexed

Moses Maimonides


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 740 pages in the PDF version. This translation by M. Friedlander was originally published in 1904.

Description

The Guide for the Perplexed is one of the three major works of Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, primarily known either as Maimonides. The first book deals with the nature of God, concluding that God cannot be described in positive terms. The second book examines natural philosophy, particularly Aristotle's system of concentric spheres, and theories of the creation and duration of the universe, and the theory of angels and prophecy. In the last Book, he expounds the mystical Merkabah section of Ezekiel, skirting the traditional prohibition of direct explanation of this passage. After this he covers the 613 laws of the Pentateuch, organized into 14 branches, attempting to present rational explanations for each law. Throughout, Maimonides stresses that the student needs to consider all theories.
