Maimonides' guide of the Perplexed : A Philosophical Guide
A classic of medieval Jewish philosophy, Maimonides's Guide of the Perplexed is as influential as it is difficult and demanding. Not only does the work contain contrary--even contradictory--statements, but Maimonides deliberately wrote in a guarded and dissembling manner in order to convey different meanings to different readers, with the knowledge that many would resist his bold reformulations of God and his relation to mankind. As a result, for all the acclaim the Guide has received, comprehension of it has been unattainable to all but a few in every generation. Drawing on a lifetime of study, Alfred L. Ivry has written the definitive guide to the Guide--one that makes it comprehensible and exciting to even those relatively unacquainted with Maimonides' thought, while also offering an original and provocative interpretation that will command the interest of scholars. Ivry offers a chapter-by-chapter exposition of the widely accepted Shlomo Pines translation of the text along with a clear paraphrase that clarifies the key terms and concepts. Corresponding analyses take readers more deeply into the text, exploring the philosophical issues it raises, many dealing with metaphysics in both its ontological and epistemic aspects.

The Commentary of Averroes on Aristotle's de Anima in the Hebrew Translation of Moses B. Samuel Ibn Tibbon
In his Middle Commentary to Aristotle's De Anima, Averroes stayed close to Aristotle's own conception, and that of the interpretive tradition of his writings, regarding the nature and powers of the soul. However, he refrained from discussing a central aspect of Aristotle's doctrine of the soul, namely, the nature of the human intellect and its relationship to the Active Intellect, nor does he discuss the eternity of the soul. Notwithstanding the neglect of this commentary by Muslim thinkers, to the point that almost all no copies of it have survived in Arabic, and its disregard by Christian scholars, it was the focus of great interest among Jewish readers. In the mid-thirteenth century it was translated twice into Hebrew, by the famous translator Moses ibn Tibbon, whose translation forms the backbone of this edition, and by Shem Tov ben Yitzhak of Tortosa.
