Overview

Almost 900 years ago, Moses Maimonides wrote Guide for the Perplexed, addressing some of the most difficult theological and philosophical questions ever asked—questions the world is still asking. Likely written to help a student understand the Merkabah narrative, or the chariot of Ezekiel, Maimonides’ text pushed theology and philosophy to discuss the origins and timeline of the universe, the nature of evil, and intelligent design. The Guide for the Perplexed is divided into three books, examining the nature of God, natural philosophy, creation theories, angels and prophecy, the Merkabah narrative, and the 613 laws of the Pentateuch. Maimonides engaged with Jewish, Islamic, and ancient Greek philosophers to construct this highly influential text, challenging Aristotle and others with scriptural and physical evidence.

Moses Maimonides (1135–1204) was a rabbi, physician, and philosopher in Morocco and Egypt. His ethical writings on Jewish law establish him as one of the most influential rabbis and philosophers in Jewish history. Today, his writings are still widely regarded as authoritative texts. His other works include a number of medical treatises, Commentary on the Mishna, and the Mishneh Torah.

M. Friedländer (1833–1910) studied Near and Far Eastern societies and cultures and was principal of Jews’ College in London. His other works include The Jewish Religion, An Essay on the Writings of Ibn Ezra, The Commentary of Abraham Ibn Ezra on Isaiah, and a German commentary on the Song of Songs. He also edited a Jewish Family Bible and contributed articles to the Jewish Quarterly Review.
