NO OF PAGES: 273 SUB CAT I: Great Jewish Thinkers SUB CAT II: Biography SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Using Maimonides's writings and a wealth of research, Heschel has fashioned the moving story of the great medieval philosopher and has evoked the passion and richness of Jewish life amid the colors and spectacles of the Arabic civilization of 12th century Spain. Heschel has also undertaken a careful critique of Maimonides's thought, focusing on his conflict with Aristotelian tradition and on his magnum opus, The Guide for the Perplexed. This sympathetic biography is an essential aid to the study of Maimonides and his influence on Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions.NOTES: SUBTITLE: The Life & Times of the Great Medieval Jewish Thinker
