Maimonides and Jewish Law

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Great Minds of the Medieval World

Maimonides and Jewish Law

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The writings of Maimonides, the Jewish scholar, philosopher, and jurist, remain a key component of Jewish culture and have influenced legal philosophy down to the modern day. Here, explore his cornerstone work on Jewish law, the Mishneh Torah, his Guide for the Perplexed, which works to integrate Greek philosophy with Jewish theology, and his thought on the Via Negativa, or Negative Theology.
