Publisher's summary

The Guide for the Perplexed (Hebrew: Moreh Nevukhim) is one of the greatest philosophical works of all time. A classic of great historical importance, it remains a work of living significance today.

The Guide for the Perplexed is one of the three major works of Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon (1135/8 - 1204), also known as Maimonides or the Rambam.

Written for those who were bewildered by the conflict between religion and scientific and philosophic ideas, The Guide for the Perplexed is concerned with finding a concord between the text of the Old Testament and its commentaries, and Aristotelian philosophy. After analyzing the ideas of the Old Testament, Maimonides examines other reconciliations of religion and philosophy like the Moslem rationalists and then offers his own resolution with Aristotelianism.

The Guide was immediately recognized as a masterpiece, and is essential for any proper understanding of the work of scholastics like Aquinas and Scotus. The Guide is indispensable for everyone interested in the Middle Ages, Judaism, medieval philosophy, or the larger problems which Maimonides addresses.
