Description:

As a physician, Maimonides is associated with Hippocrates as a founder of modern medicine; his influence in philosophy is equal to that of Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, and Kant; in religion, he is as significant as Moses, Martin Luther, and Saint Augustine; and as a lawgiver, he has been recognized by the United States Congress as one of the greatest alongside Hammurabi and Thomas Jefferson. Now, in a dazzling work of scholarship, Joel Kraemer tells the complete story of Maimonides' rich life.

Quotes:

There are few things all Jews can agree on, but one may be that there is no figure in Judaism in the last 1,000 years who is as revered as Moses ben Maimon (1135-1204), better known by the Greek form of his name, Maimonides. Joel L. Kraemer's extensive biography Maimonides brings this venerated rabbi and physician to life for a new generation of readers..., Shaul Magid, , The Washington Post

...a definitive biography of medieval Judaism's chief intellectual sage..., Publishers Weekly

Kraemer...has a talent for synthesis, distilling Maimonides' entire corpus of writing...into a fluid and accessible narrative...compelling even for readers unfamiliar with Maimonides' contributions to philosophy., Booklist
