KIER8, October 24, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
Professors Raymond L. Weiss and Charles Butterworth did a great job in editing, translating [from the Arabic and Hebrew], and annotating "Ethical Writings of Maimonides". Now we can benefit from their use of the best editions in the preparation of their scholarly translations of:
a} from the Mishneh Torah: "Laws Concerning Character Traits [all seven chapters],"Laws Concerning Repentance [chapter nine], "Laws of Kings and their Wars" [chapters eleven and twelve]
b} from the Commentary on the Mishnah: "Eight Chapters" [complete], and "Pereq Heleq"
c} On the Management of Health
d} Letter to Joseph ben Judah
e} Guide of the Perplexed {Shlomo Pines translation]
f} Treatise on the Art of Logic
Thanks to Weiss and Butterworkth's efforts we can all glean wisdom from Maimonides' ideas.
