Medieval Jewish Moral and Political Philosophy

I have met Jonathan Jacobs (Colgate University [Faculty Page]) a few times at Liberty Fund symposia, and very much enjoyed his interventions at those gatherings. He recently shared the news that his book on Medieval Jewish moral and political philosophy is now published by Oxford University Press. Jon says:

Please pardon the self-promotion; my Law, Reason, and Morality in Medieval Jewish Philosophy was very recently published by Oxford. It is currently available in the U.K. and will be available in the U.S. in several weeks. Like many books these days, it is quite expensive but you might consider asking your library to purchase a copy. It is mainly a study of the moral psychology and moral epistemology of some medieval Jewish philosophers [Maimonides, Saadia, and Bahya]… thinkers supplying resources and insights of enduring relevance. It also includes discussion of their conceptions of free will, the virtues, the relation between the rational justification of practical requirements and revelation, and also the differences and the overlap between their moral epistemology and that of natural law theorizing and approaches through practical wisdom. I’m trying to help make some of these thinkers ‘more people’s business.’
