Dr Alfred Ivry discussed his book “Maimonides’ Guide of the Perplexed: A Philosophical Guide”

April 22 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 

 Maimonides’ book is the preeminent work of Jewish philosophy, transcending its medieval origins. It has inspired as well as scandalized its readers through the centuries, its author apparently espousing a universal creed removed from the traditional Jewish beliefs he championed in his rabbinic writings. In his talk, Ivry will discuss the radical commitment Maimonides had to philosophy, and the compromises he made with his faith.

 

Alfred Ivry, Ph.D., D. Phil.(Oxon.), taught medieval Jewish and Islamic philosophy at Cornell, Ohio State, Brandeis and New York University. He has been a resident of Salisbury since 1991
