About the Authors
  • Jewish medieval philosophy has formed the subject of much research over the past thirty years since the appearance of Gutmann's Philosophies of Judaism, resulting in greater understanding and a new need for summation. This important work, now available in paperback, aims to supply that need, and devotes ample discussion to the major figures of the period like Saadiah Gaon, Maimonides, Abraham Ibn Ezra and Judah Halevi. It also gives much attention to the discussion and presentation of texts by lesser known authors clustering around the greater men and movements.

    'A History of Jewish Philosophy in the Middle Ages will be of great use not only to those interested in Jewish thought; it should also be consulted by students of Muslim and Christian thought too.' Renaissance Studies
