Terminology Tuesday: Moses Maimonides
Spanish-born Jewish philosopher who eventually settled in Cairo after escaping forced conversion to Christianity. Maimonides defended a biblical view of creation against Aristotelian theories that the world is eternal while at the same time defending a negative theology that requires a recognition of the anthropomorphic quality of much of the biblical language about God. See also Aristotle; anthropomorphism.
