Overview

In this original study, noted scholar and theologian David Hartman discusses the relation between Maimonides' halakhic writings and The Guide of the Perplexed -- the connection is much closer than is generally supposed. Maimonides: Torah and Philosophic Quest demonstrates that Maimonides' total phiosophic 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.

This pioneering work, originally published by JPS in 1976, earned Dr. Hartman a National Jewish Book Award for a book on Jewish thought.
