The Book of Direction to the Duties of the Heart

From the Original Arabic Version of Pakuda's "Al-Hidaya ila Fara'id al-Qulub"

תקציר
Bahya Ibn Pakuda was born c. 1050, and lived for some time in Saragossa in Spain. His major work was written in Arabic, but it is most well-known by its Hebrew title Hovot ha-Levavot (Duties of the Heart). It enjoyed enormous popularity and was reprinted many times.

In the book, Bahya investigates the motivation of Jewish practice and embarks on a philosophical inquiry into the nature of God, religion, and man. He was very much influenced by the Neoplatonism of his age, as well as by the Muslim mystics.

This edition by Menahem Mansoor is the first translation of the work from the original Arabic text, and this shows a number of variations from the Hebrew version. He has added an Introduction and Notes which draw attention to the influences on Bahya's thought and to other relevant material.
Translated from Arabic by Menahem Mansoor with Sara Arenson and Shoshana Dannhauser
