How To Read the Bible: Maimonides vs. Spinoza

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

Should every passage of the Hebrew Bible be read literally? Is the Bible a source of not just religious inspiration but historical, scientific and theological truths? These are questions on which two of the greatest Jewish philosophers ever — Maimonides and Spinoza, both arch-rationalists — disagreed. Spinoza, in fact, explicitly criticizes Maimonides over his account of the interpretation of Scripture, making a comparison of the two thinkers especially interesting.
