I'm interested in learning more about the different philosophical opinions amongst the early Rishonim, such as Maimonides, R' Yehuda Halevi, etc.
I was hoping someone could recommend a good resource. I'd prefer as many of the following conditions:
- Written from an Orthodox point of view
- Easy to read
- Geared towards the layman
- No knowledge of greek philosophy required (bonus if the greek philosophical ideas are explained as well)
- I'd prefer english, but an easy to read hebrew would also be acceptable.
I've found some books on Amazon, but don't know anything about them. If you've read them, please let me know if you recommend them, or if there are others that are not listed which you'd recommend.
