Jewish Philosophy in the Middle Ages: Science, Rationalism, and Religion

T. M. Rudavsky

Abstract

The purpose of this volume is to provide an account of how medieval Jewish philosophy, from the tenth century to Spinoza, forms part of an ongoing dialogue with medieval Christian and Islamic thought. It provides a corrective to available works, and a supplement to available histories of philosophy, many of which devote little space to Jewish philosophy.

Keywords: Jewish philosophy, medieval philosophy, science, rationalism, faith and reason, medieval science
