`Is time finite or infinite? Is time composed of indivisible units? Did God create the universe in time, or did God create time?' If you are interested in answering such questions then maybe this is the book for you. This study looks at the concepts of time, creation and cosmology in the Jewish philosophical writings of figures such as Ibn Gabirol, Maimonides, Gersonides and Spinoza. It addresses many technical and complex philosophical ideas, but explains them in a lucid fashion. However, this is still a highly specialised work.

About the Author:

T. M. Rudavsky is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Jewish Studies at The Ohio State University. She is the editor of Divine Omniscience and Omnipotence in Medieval Philosophy: Islamic, Jewish, and Christian Perspectives and Gender and Judaism: The Transformation of Tradition.

Review:

"The topic is significant, especially now in view of the renewed interest in scientific cosmology and its relation to religion, but it is also of great importance for the history of medieval Jewish, Christian, and Islamic philosophy. The book covers a wide range of difficult, often technical philosophical ideas and theories in a highly analytical and systematic fashion, and I especially like the author's consistent ability to sketch out the arguments of these thinkers in a careful and lucid way. She also displays considerable erudition in both original sources and scholarly literature, regardless of whether the discussions are historical or philosophical. I found the book interesting and illuminating." -- Barry S. Kogan, author of Averroes and the Metaphysics of Causation
