From Philo of Judea to Maimonides and beyond, medieval Jewish philosophy created an outstanding, unbroken tradition. Jewish thinkers worked to square Biblical faith with the demands of reason; their efforts to understand the individual in relation to God and to the human community powerfully foreshadowed contemporary problems. Maimonides, who can be compared with Saint Thomas Aquinas, profoundly influenced much subsequent philosophy.
The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

Maimonides Thought Revisited
Not very good.
I am familiar with the pronunciations used to describe these issues in British English, American English and Australian English. None of them have the quite wacky pronunciations used for some of the Hebrew terms used in this reading. It was very distracting, as the reader seem to 'Frenchify' the pronunciation. Could no one be found familiar with the pronunciations?
The content itself was OK.
See above - she was obviously unfamiliar with the material.
I gave up half way through. It was annoying, because there is nothing of equivalent length on audible.
It would be good if there could have been biographical information on the audible site about the author.
