1 Review
This volume deals with the philosophical and exegetical doctrines of one of the greatest figures of the Golden Age of Spain - Moses Ibn 'Ezra, as they appear in his "Garden of the Metaphor" ("Maq?lat al-?ad?qa"). The latter, a study of man in his spiritual and physical aspects, is a resume of all that a cultured Judaeo-arabic individual should know about philosophy. The author reviews the biblical metaphors dealing with man, against the background of the intellectual and literary climate of the period.
