"Buijs is to be congratulated for gathering into one volume essays of such a scope and quality, as well as for confronting the challenging issues of interpretation raised so acutely by Leo Strauss. This combination of factors makes this work immensely useful to students of philosophy and theology who may have been misled by their earlier studies into thinking that one can understand the medieval intellectual explosion without attending to its sources in the Arabic culture--of which Maimonides is a particularly lucid witness."--David B. Burrell, C.S.C.

"This is a splendid project filling a long-standing need and carried to fulfillment in handsome fashion. Maimonides--Moses ben Maimon--is a thinker one does not read long before becoming aware of a probing and informed intelligence. . . . His voice belongs prominently in the dialogue of the great spirits of our civilization. This volume of critical essays should help to put him there." --Harold J. Johnson, University of Western Ontario

"Professor Buijis' Maimonides is a very fine anthology of contemporary Maimonidean studies. . . . the essays] cover a rich variety of topics in Maimonides' philosophy and represent widely different approaches among Maimonidean scholars." --Aviezer Ravitzky, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
