in the 'Guide for the Perplexed' by Rabbi Moshe Maimonides, who are the 'attributists' he speaks of? Are they other Jews with a different view, a different sect within Judaism, the Mohammedans, the Christians, or another group? He speaks of them several times but this is an example:

"The Scriptures unquestionably ascribe to God Existence, Life, Power, Wisdom, Unity, Eternity, and Will. The Attributists regard these as properties distinct from, but co-existing with, the Essence of God. "
