I've learned Derech Hashem a few times and I'm on my second time through the English version of Da'ath Tevunos "the knowing heart" and I'm having a hard time picking out the differences between the two conceptually. Any pointers?

Can you clarify a bit? Are you looking for differences such as where the Ramchal seems to hold to different positions, or differences such as facts that are included in one book and not the other? In terms of style, the two books are worlds apart, as I'm sure you've noticed – Matt Jun 17 '14 at 2:11
daas tevunos is much deeper – Gizbar Jun 17 '14 at 19:36
