Example text

But in the passage quoted above he confines himself to a delinea­ tion of the main object of this treatise, and advisedly leaves unmentioned the other two subjects, which, however important they may be, are here of subordinate in­ terest. Nor did he consider it necessary to expatiate on these subjects; he only wrote for the student, for whom a mere reference to works on philosophy and science was sufficient. ” By references of this kind the author may have intended to create a taste for the study of philosophical works.

See Maskir, , p. ). MS. Bodl. , , contains a letter of Jehudah b. Shelomoh on some passages of the Moreh, and Zerahyah’s reply. —The MS. Brit. Mus.  contains marginal and interlineary notes in Arabic. No author or date is given, nor is any other commentary referred to in the notes. The explanations given are mostly preceded by a question, and introduced by the phrase, “the an­ swer is,” in the same style as is employed in the Hebrew-Arabic Midrash, MS. Brit. Mus. Or. . The Midrashic character is prominent in the notes.

The treatment of the simile must vary according as the simile is compound or simple. In the first case, each part represents a separate idea and demands a sepa­ rate interpretation; in the other case, only one idea is represented, and it is not necessar y to assign to each part a separate metaphorical meaning. This division the author illustrates by citing the dream of Jacob (Gen. xxviii. ), and the description of the adulteress (Prov. vii. ). He gives no rule by which it might be ascertained to which of the two categories a simile belongs, and, like other Commentators, he seems to treat as essential those details of a simile for which he can offer an adequate interpretation.
