Product Overview

Recognized as one of the earliest Jewish neo-Platonist writers, Isaac ben Solomon Israeli (ca. 855?955) influenced Muslim, Jewish, and Christian scholars through the Middle Ages. A native of Egypt who wrote in Arabic, Israeli explored definitions of such terms as imagination, sense-perception, desire, love, creation, and ?coming-to-be? in his writings.

This classic volume contains English translations of Israeli?s philosophical writings, including theBook of Definitions, the Book of Substances, and the Book on Spirit and Soul. Additionally,Isaac Israeli features a biographical sketch of the philosopher and extensive notes and comments on the texts, as well as a survey and appraisal of his philosophy. Restored to print for the first time in decades,Isaac Israeli will be essential reading for students and scholars of medieval philosophy and Jewish studies.
