Product Description

Product Description

Providing an excellent overview of the latest thinking in Maimonides studies, this book uses a novel philosophical approach to examine whether Maimonides' Guide for the Perplexed contains a naturalistic doctrine of salvation after death.


The author examines the apparent tensions and contradictions in the Guide and explains them in terms of a modern philosophical interpretation rather than as evidence of some esoteric meaning hidden in the text.

About the Author

Donald McCallum received a Ph.D in philosophy from the University of Manchester and now works as a civil servant.  His research interests are in the areas of mediaeval philosophy, especially in the Jewish tradition, Spinoza and Schopenhauer.
