Translator Leon Simon serves as editor for this collection of seven essays, originally published in 1910, drawn from lectures given at the North London Jewish Literary Union between 1907 and 1909. They give readers a very general overview of the predispositions and predilections of Jewish thought since the time when Jews were dispersed across the world. This volume covers the intellectual development of the Jewish community since the coming of Christianity, but because of the time of publication, does not cover the change in Judaism as a result of the Holocaust. Topics covered in this book include: . Jewish Mysticism . Aristotle and Medieval Jewish Thought . Maimonides . Saadiah Gaon LEON SIMON (1881-1965) wrote a number of books on Jewish topics, including Selected Essays By Ahad Ha-'am (1912).
