During his life and to date, the Rambam is considered as one of the greatest and most important philosophers and intellectuals ever. He was a scientist, physician, scholar, spiritual leader, and was among the greatest rabbinical arbiters, if not the greatest of them all. His sublime personality, his clear thinking in his interpretation and comprehension of the Torah in all its smaller and larger aspects, his ability to deeply understand and explain to the reader all the Jewish laws as well as the mysteries and powers of the human mind, his understanding of the human body and human morals — both the Jewish and universal ones — are extremely impressive.
These and other skills made the Rambam into one of the most revered persons ever — mainly among Jews but also among people of other beliefs and nations. Thanks to his talents, the Rambam earned the name of the great eagle. The Rambam was known as a pre-eminent philosopher, both in Arab culture and European culture. The rationalistic teachings of the Rambam are expressed in the abundance of books he wrote. His understanding and philosophy of the Jewish laws, his vision of the mosaic of life and morals, his knowledge of the structure of body and soul and the relation between them, the principles of health and the knowledge of curing diseases — all of these are reflected in his many works.
The Rambam wrote not only philosophical and religious teachings, but also books on the structure of the soul and the human body, and on matters of health, medicine, and diseases.
The following are the most important books written by the Rambam, dealing with philosophical issues on the behavior, the constitution, and the health of man. The order of their appearance in this list is of no importance, all of them are equally important. This is the most elaborate philosophical-religious book written by the Rambam. It has become an inalienable part of Jewish heritage and philosophy. In this work, the Rambam focuses mainly on the recesses of the human soul and body. This is a comprehensive work on matters of health and healing.
This book contains a compilation of some 1, health directives on all fields of medicine. The contents of the book are mostly founded on the teachings of Galen, the well known physician and philosopher of Greek descent who lived in Rome around the year The Rambam was a great admirer of the teachings on medicine and diseases of Hippocrates, who was the greatest physician of ancient Greece.
The book describes essential principles of Hippocrates on the approach to life, health, medicine, and diseases and how the Rambam sees them. The book focuses on matters of health, how to improve health, hygiene, etc. The Rambam compiled everything written by Galen about diseases and their healing, but this compilation includes only the treatment of diseases that were acceptable to the Rambam. The book is about diseases of the digestive tract and how to treat and avoid them.
In this book, the Rambam describes the disease and how to treat and avoid it. This is a very impressive list indeed, rare in its scope and depth, dealing with health, healing, and the understanding of the recesses of the soul and its connection with the body.
His writings present an in-depth research of the essence of the human soul, its structure, and its many functions. The psyche is the essence and controls all human physical, psychological, and spiritual functions. This is the opening sentence of his book The Eight Chapters. This single soul regulates all the various actions of human existence. Some of these activities have been called souls, which has given rise to the opinion that man has many souls. In the first chapter of this book, the Rambam continues to elaborate on the issue of oneness of the soul.
According to the Rambam, every individual possesses various faculties, but this does not mean that a person has several identities. The reader discovers an interesting facet in this comprehensive, holistic view of the Rambam. It means that the soul has various faculties, but its parts are not divided.
The soul is one and contains the entire human essence. There is no external factor of any kind that reigns over all the faculties and abilities of man. Each person has one identity residing in one soul. Therefore, man cannot claim an eruption of uncontrollable powers inside of him, exempting himself from the responsibility of such eruptions. That is because they are his own powers and not a foreign influence originating from outside his body. True, the personality of a person is one, but in this personality one can discern several activities, all of which originate from the same soul.
This view contradicts the view of other sages who existed among Jews and other nations over the generations. The latter expresses the belief that man should wish and strive for love and awe for the Almighty God. This clarification shows that actually there is no contradiction, and, according the majority of sages in Israel, the human soul is one.

Smetana and other scholars have questioned the unorthodoxy of the theology used in the poem, with some charging the poem with dualism i. However, Frantzen reassesses this apparent inversion of the soul and body hierarchy, arguing that the poem does, in fact, follow normative Christian beliefs because its focus is not on theology, but penitential practice. He states that, while the soul may will repentance, "the body must bear the burden of mortification; if the body does penance it becomes the soul's 'lord' and 'protector' because it ensures the soul's bliss in eternity; and, conversely, if the body refuses to do penance it becomes a tyrant who destroys their union Additionally, Frantzen points to the homilies of Aelfric and handbooks of penance to illustrate that Soul and Body has much in common with the pastoral teachings of the late Anglo-Saxon period As such, early Christian audiences were very familiar with these themes; the imagery would have had strong implications for them Ferguson From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
