The Rambam’s first sefer!
Milos Hahigayon L’HaRambam. Venice, 1550
Milos HaHigayon (the art of logic), Definitions and explanations of 175 fundamental philosophical concepts by the Ramba”m (Rabbenu Moshe ben Maimon) This sefer features two commentaries (one long and one short) by an anonymous Author.
Milos Hahigayon was the Rambam’s first work, and legend has it that it was written when he was only 16 years old during the time when he lived in Spain. The original work was authored in Arabic, and was translated into Hebrew by Rabbi Moshe Ibn Tabon.
This work is fundamental to the understanding of the Rambam’s later works, particularly The Guide to the Perplexed. The Rambam himself inscribed in The Guide to the Perplexed Vol. 1 Ch. 34: “It is essential for one who wishes to attain the highest levels of wisdom to first train himself in the art of logic, and then in the other fields according to the proper order.”
