    The other reason Pines sets forth is that Maimonides' style is user-friendly and that the clarity of the ideas exposed in his writings are plain and simple thus easy to access. Pines nevertheless admits that Maimonides tried to limit the scope of his readers to those possessing philosophical knowledge and presented his work in an esoteric light. 1.

    A classic of medieval Jewish philosophy, Maimonides's Guide of the Perplexed is as influential as it is difficult and demanding. Not only does the work contain contrary even contradictory statements, but Maimonides deliberately wrote in a guarded and dissembling manner in order to convey different meanings to different readers, with the knowledge that many would resist his bold reformulations. Here are the most significant ethical writings of the 12th-century philosopher, physician, and master of rabbinical literature — translated from the original sources by noted Maimonides scholars. Includes the first English versions of "Eight Chapters," plus "Laws Concerning Character Traits," "Treatise on the Art of Logic," and gleanings from Maimonides' medical writings.

Born in Córdoba, Almoravid Empire. Maimonides, a native of Cordoba, Spain, belonged to the school of Aristotle and his Muslim interpreters, notably al-Farabi, Avicenna, and Averroes. In all of his writings, philosophical as well as halakhic, Maimonides took philosophy as the medium for attaining the heights of religious experience, namely, the love and awe of God.

For students versed both in the Talmud and in philosophy, Maimonides wrote his Moreh Nebukim, the object of which was to bring into harmony Talmudical Judaism and peripatetic philosophy as developed among the Arabs.

According to Maimonides, he wrote the Guide "to promote the true understanding of the real spirit of the Law, to guide those religious persons who, adhering to the Torah, have studied philosophy and are embarrassed by the contradictions between the teachings of philosophy and the literal sense of the Torah," [4] and his main purpose is to expound on Maaseh Bereishit and Maaseh Merkavah, [5] works of Jewish.

This type of education justified Maimonides to teach an outward form of orthodox doctrine that resembled the biblical teachings of Moses and Prophets, but inwardly this "double doctrine" principle allowed him to advocate the beliefs of the Greek philosophers, mainly Aristotle.This chapter introduces philosophical perspectives on education by discussing five major educational thoughts or philosophies (Idealism, Realism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, and Postmodernism) and.Maimonides, following Aristotle, understands political philosophy as a discipline concerned with true happiness and the means to attain it, both in the training of one's moral qualities and in the implementation of just laws for the ordering of society as a whole.
