REL 80.08 Maimonides

"The modern Enlightenment postulated that "All men were created equal," at least in the sense that an essential part of being human was being a moral agent, capable of rational choice, and, thus, equally worthy of respect. No serious medieval thinkers would have found that credible. Their moral and intellectual ideals were thoroughly elitist. Nevertheless, some of them were committed to progressive political ideals, which constitute the Enlightenment toward which they worked, often at considerable personal risk. Maimonides' work epitomizes this type of Enlightenment, both in its arguments and in the style of its esotericism. The seminar will strive to achieve a synoptic view of this classic of Western religious-political thought."

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
