Description

Excerpt from Maimonides: Paper Read Before the Philosophical Society of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich., January 19, 1890 In a rough estimate, we may class him amongst philosophers of religion. He means to show that a reconciliation between religion and philosophy is possible. But the Bible is to him still an oracle, which ought in all cases to yield the right response. Be it remarked here, however, that Maimonides is more susceptible to suggestions coming from textual criticism than, perhaps, the majority of spanish-jewish writers, with the exceptions of the Kimchi's and more especially of Abraham ibn Esra. Maimonides does not hesitate to abandon the traditional version of the Bible when it comes into conflict with what is proved to be other wise incontrovertible. It was a dictum of his that reason must be the test of faith; nothing that contradicts reason can be an Object of belief, or can form a 'part of valid religion.
