1340-1410/11), the great Catalan Jewish philosopher who contributed to the revolution of modern science and profoundly influenced Spinoza. Part I treats of Crescas radical critique of the Aristotelian concepts of space, time, and the vacuum, and analyzes his vision of an infinite universe- it discusses his criticisms of Maimonides proofs of God, and expounds his own proof- and it concludes with a discussion of his concept of God as infinite Love.

Part II contains three essays on Crescas strictly deterministic theory of human choice.
