Item description for Maimonides: Torah and Philosophic Quest by David Hartman...
In this original study, noted scholar and theologian David Hartman discusses the relation between Maimonides' halakhic writings and The Guide of the Perplexed--a connection much closer than is generally supposed. Maimonides: Torah and Philosophic Quest demonstrates that Maimonides' total philosophic endeavor was an attempt to show how the free search for truth, established through the study of logic, physics, and metaphysics, can live harmoniously with a way of life defined by the normative traditions of Judaism.

A treasure of a read for the thinking and spiritual Jew Dec 16, 2009
One of the great post-Biblical Jewish philosophers, "Maimonides: Torah and Philosophic Quest" discusses his writings and how they had a certain duality of piety through tradition and law, and piety through one's own way of uniting with God. His philosophies in both aspects ask much of readers to think about themselves, the world around them, and God. "Maimonides" is a treasure of a read for the thinking and spiritual Jew.
