Sitre ‘Arayot in Maimonides’ Thought
1. Few, if any, are the books which have been conceived as guides yet intentionally spread so much perplexity. Rather than delivering one from errors and doubts, Maimonides’ Guide creates new ones, sometimes seemingly more serious than those he deemed to solve. This is the result of the peculiar manner in which Maimonides planned his work. No full-fledged philosophical system emerges from his book, and its very plan is far from being clear and obvious. Its philosophical and religious solutions are only rarely expressed explicitly. Intended to be a guide to the very few, it succeeded in becoming a real puzzle for the many.
