    Abraham Bibago on Intellectual Conjunction and Human Happiness. Faith and Metaphysics According to a 15th Century Jewish Averroist.Yehuda Halper - 2015 - Quaestio 15:309-318.
    The 15th century Jewish Aragonian thinker, Abraham Bibago treats conjunction in his two main works, Derekh Emunah and Commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics. In the former, which explicitly interprets Biblical and Talmudic stories along philosophical lines, Bibago promotes a neo-Platonic intellectual emanation schema and boldly asserts that human happiness is attained through conjunction with higher intellects. In the Commentary, which primarily treats Aristotle’s Metaphysics and Averroes’ commentaries on it, Bibago gives an account of conjunction that does not necessarily fit with the (...)

    Dialecticians and Dialectics in Averroes’ Long Commentary on Gamma 2 of Aristotle's Metaphysics.Yehuda Halper - 2016 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 26 (1):161-184.
    While Averroes’ work is often considered to represent the culmination of the method of Aristotelian demonstration in Arabic philosophy, a short passage of hisLong Commentaryon Aristotle'sMetaphysicsΓ.2 emphasizes the prominence of dialectic and calls for a re-examination of dialectic and demonstration in Averroes’ philosophical works. In this passage Averroes describes dialectic as an acceptable form of philosophy and the dialectician as a kind of scientist. In putting dialectic and demonstration on an equal, or nearly equal footing, Averroes seems to go against (...)

    Il Commento Medio di Averroè Alla Metafisica di Aristotele Nella Tradizione Ebraica: Edizione Delle Versioni Ebraiche Medievali di Zeraḥyah Ḥen E di Qalonymos Ben Qalonymos Con Introduzione Storica E Filologica (Averroes' Middle Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics in the Hebrew Tradition: Edition of the Medieval Hebrew Versions by Zeraḥyah Ḥen and Qalonymos Ben Qalonymos, Together with a Historical and Philological Introduction).Yehuda Halper - 2013 - Philosophy East and West 63 (1):96-99.
    Mauro Zonta's long awaited work Il Commento medio di Averroè alla Metafisica di Aristotele nella tradizione ebraica is really three books in one: a historical and philological account of the two medieval Hebrew translations of Averroes' Middle Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics and editions of both translations. The Arabic of Averroes' Middle Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics is not extant apart from a few fragments (see vol. 1, pp. 13-5). Nor is there a direct Latin translation of the Arabic—indeed, Zonta states that (...)

    The Convergence of Religious and Metaphysical Concepts: Mofet and Devequt in the Hebrew Translation of Averroës’ Long Commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics.Yehuda Halper - 2011 - Studia Neoaristotelica 8 (2):163-177.
    Translators of Aristotle’s and Averroës’ metaphysical works into 14th C Hebrew often associated important philosophical concepts with Hebrew terms that were also used to signify central Jewish and Biblical religious concepts. Here I examine how two such terms, “mofet” and “devequt”, were used to refer to extraordinary, divine wonders and to clinging respectively in the religious texts, but to Aristotelian demonstration and continuity respectively in the translations of Averroës’ Long Commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics. This kind of convergence of metaphysical and (...)

    The Only Extant, Complete, and Original Hebrew Commentary on the Entire Metaphysics of Aristotle: Eli Habilio and the Influence of Scotism.Yehuda Halper - 2019 - Vivarium 57 (1-2):182-205.
    At the end of the fifteenth century, the Castilian-Aragonian Eli Habilio wrote what is now the only extant, complete, and original Hebrew commentary on the entire Metaphysics of Aristotle. This commentary is short, about 15 folio pages long, and consists almost entirely of quotations from Averroes’ Middle Commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics in the early fourteenth-century translation of Qalonimos ben Qalonimos. Yet Habilio elsewhere expresses only disdain for Averroes and hopes that Jews will turn away from Averroes to read Scotus’ metaphysical (...)
