Maimonides’ True Belief Concerning God
The primary difficulty met with in presenting a systematization of Maimonides’ true belief concerning God in the Guide of the Perplexed is that Maimonides gives basically two contradictory concepts of the nature of deity. Accordingly, a systematization requires a description of the contradictory views regarding God that appear in the Guide, an analysis of the reasons for the contradiction, a resolution of the contradiction, and a statement of Maimonides’ true belief concerning God. The two views of deity Maimonides gives in the Guide will be referred to as the absolute transcendence concept and the qualified transcendence concept.
