About the Authors
  • This book surveys the vast body of medieval Jewish philosophy, devoting ample discussion to major figures such as Saadiah Gaon, Maimonides, Abraham Ibn Ezra, Judah Halevi, Abraham Ibn Daoud, and Gersonides, as well as presenting the ancillary texts of lesser known authors. Sirat quotes little-known texts, providing commentary and situating them within their historical and philosophical contexts. A comprehensive bibliography directs the reader to the texts themselves and to recent studies.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Mme. Sirat proves to be a trustworthy and authoritative guide. She relies to a large extent, quite rightly, on lengthy quotations from the philosophers she discusses, and she manages to place them neatly and accurately in wider sociological and intellectual contexts. Her canvas is broad and readers will encounter...many writers of whose existence they were not aware." Jewish Chronicle

    "The book is distinguished by the rich variety of material cited in lengthy quotations." Menachen Kellne, International Studies in Philosophy
