This work details the life of Alexandrian Jewish philosopher Philo and his guidance on the conduct of the spiritual life, with an introduction surveying the life and works of Philo and the critical writing on his philosophy. To Philo, the road to blessedness is the struggle against sin, which begins with penance; then a general struggle against the passions and the world; then a double road to perfection, through knowledge and askesis, "practice, training, asceticism"; To Philo, the result is in the perfection of knowledge in the divine vision, and perfect wisdom. Readers interested in Jewish mysticism and philosophy will find this an especially worthwhile read.

The Concept of Intention in the Old Testament, Philo of Alexandria and the Early Rabbinic Literature

A study in human intentionality in the area of criminal, cultic and religious and ethical law.
ISBN: 978-1-59333-653-0
Does God take into account only the physical act, or does He also consider intention? Does inward motivation truly matter in the areas of criminal or cultic law? Were there differences between the biblical, hellenistic and rabbinic views on intention? This book explores what the Old Testament, Philo, and the early Rabbis thought about human intentionality in a legal context.
