    Dogma in Medieval Jewish Thought: From Maimonides to Abravanel.Menachem Marc Kellner - 1986 - Oxford University Press.
    This study charts the development of creed formulation in Judaism from its inception with Moses Maimonides (1135-1204) to the beginning of the 16th century, when systematic attention to the problem disappeared from the agenda of Jewish intellectuals. Kellner describes, analyzes, and compares the dogmatic systems of Maimonides, Duran, Crescas, Albo, Bibago, Abravanel, and many others, and provides English translations of several previously unexamined or untranslated texts.

    Is Maimonides’ Ideal Person Austerely Rationalist?Menachem Kellner - 2002 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 76 (1):125-143.
    Maimonides is regularly thought to have seen the ideal human as nothing more than a rational animal. In this essay I show that this picture of Maimonides is insufficiently nuanced and reflects a notion of intellectualism thinner and more pallid than that actually held by him. But first I adduce evidence for the standard view from Maimonides’ positions on perfected and imperfected human beings, and from his discussions of immortality, morality, providence, prophecy, and the distinction between humans and animals. Maimonides’ (...)

    Freedom and Moral Responsibility: General and Jewish Perspectives.Charles Harry Manekin & Menachem Marc Kellner (eds.) - 1997 - University Press of Maryland.
    Presents five new perspectives on the free will problem, and six interpretations of what Jewish thinkers of the past had to say about the problem. Topics include the concept of freedom that exists independently of a sense of self, arguments against the principle of alternative possibilities, the denial of free will in Hasidic thought, notions of choice held by Medieval Jewish and Islamic thinkers, and Maimonides' concepts of freedom and the sense of shame.

    Maimonides and Gersonides on Mosaic Prophecy.Menachem Kellner - 1977 - Speculum 52 (1):62-79.
    Gersonides and Maimonides shared many ideas concerning the possibility and nature of prophecy. This is hardly surprising; not only were they both Jewish Aristotelians, but Gersonides clearly implies that the problems he raises in his major philosophic work, Milhamot Hashem, are those problems and only those problems to which Maimonides failed to provide adequate solutions. In this essay I want to examine Gersonides' understanding of prophecy in general and his conception of Mosaic prophecy in particular. This issue is of considerable (...)

    Maimonides on Judaism and the Jewish People explores Maimonides' philosophical psychology, his ethics, his views on prophecy, providence, and immortality, his understanding of the place of gentiles in the Messianic area, his attitude toward proselytes, his answer to the question, "Who is a Jew?", his conception of the nature of Torah, and his arguments concerning the nature of the Chosen People. With respect to each of these issues, Kellner shows that Maimonides adopted positions that reflected his emphasis on nurture over (...)

    Maimonides on the "Decline of the Generations" and the Nature of Rabbinic Authority.Menachem Marc Kellner - 1996 - SUNY Press.
    Maimonides affirmed, not the superiority of the "moderns" (the scholars of his and subsequent generations) over the "ancients" (the Tannaim and Amoraim, the Rabbis of the Mishnah and Talmud) but the inherent equality of the two. The equality presented here is not equality of halakhic authority, but equality of ability, of essential human characteristics.
