Description

Written in the 12th century, Moses Maimonides' "Guide for the Perplexed" was a long letter to one of his rabbinical students discussing a variety of philosophical matters concerning theology. In part, the text seeks to clarify some of the contradictions between the literal meaning of the Torah and its philosophical explications. A strong influence on philosophical discourse since its publication, the text continues to interest contemporary philosophers and theologians.
