Shemonah Perakim: A Treatise on the Soulby Kerry M. Olitzky
Synopses & Reviews
From the authors who brought you the highly acclaimed Pirke Avot: A Modern Commentary on Jewish Ethics comes another thoughtful work exploring a Jewish classic. Shemonah Perakim — also called Eight Chapters — served as Moses Maimonides' introduction to his commentary on Pirke Avot. Focusing on such themes as virtue, vice, ethics, God, and free will, the text not only adds further layers of meaning to the study of Pirke Avot but also gives valuable insight into the philosophy of Maimonides.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 130-131) and index.
