Lecture by Kenneth Seeskin, Northwestern University

It is generally agreed that Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed is one of the greatest if not the greatest book ever written on Jewish philosophy.  Unfortunately there has never been agreement on what the book is actually trying to do.  This lecture will try to clarify things by emphasizing  what Maimonides says about the limits of human knowledge.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required. Limited seating.
