Item description for Maimonide: Philosophe Et Savant (1138-1204) (Ancient and Classical Sciences and Philosophy) by T. Levy & Roshdi Rashed...
Maimonides, a philosopher in the tradition of al-Farabi, was a physician, well-informed in mathematics, and a master of Talmudic literature. The goal of this book is to examine the links between philosophy and science in Maimonides' work, and also to situate it within its genuine historical context, between Cordoba and Cairo in the 12th century. The studies collected here explore several facets of this work: logic, mathematical knowledge and philosophy, medical writings, conception of free will and of the relations between nature and law, etc. They also examine the impact of Maimonides' work on Arabic, Hebrew, and Latin scientific and philosophical literature.
