Gersonides
(Levi ben Gerson, 1288–1344)
The most important Jewish Aristotelian after Maimonides . His major work, The Wars of the Lord, investigates problems that he considers Maimonides not to have resolved, tend-ing to a rather stricter Aristotelianism, and frequently siding with Averroës against Maimonides. Gersonides was also an astronomer, and an authority on biblical criticism.
