He has served as a perennial landmark and point of reference in the construction of modern Jewish identity. Book Description: In this brief book the author examines the central doctrine of important Christian, Jewish, and Muslim philosophers and shows the contributions of medieval thought to present-day philosophy. Intended not only for philosophers, but for anyone seeking a concise and reliable survey.

As such, Jewish thought is not a single continuous tradition, but rather a varied mix of works, which reflect the specific ideological and historical positions of those who wrote them.
