Summary
This study highlights the contributions of the great philosopher-talmudist Moses Maimonides to the rationalist, "plain sense" (peshat) tradition of Jewish Bible exegesis, assessing his place in the Geonic-Andalusian school and showing how he harnessed Greco-Arabic learning to open new hermeneutical possibilities
