Maimonides Quote

I have composed this work neither for the common people, nor for beginners, nor for those who occupy themselves only with the Law as it is handed down without concerning themselves with its principles. The design of this work is rather to promote the true understanding of the real spirit of the Law, to guide those religious persons who, adhering to the Torah, have studied philosophy and are embarrassed by the contradictions between the teachings of philosophy and the literal sense of the Torah.


As quoted in The Jewish Encyclopedia (12 vols. 1901-1906) - Guide for the Perplexed (c. 1190) - Introduction
