The highest form of knowledge is inversely related to its certainty

I did not expect the book about Maimonides (Rambam) would be so important to read ...

"The more we become concerned with the extremaly abstract being and existence, let alone G-d, the less certain is our knowledge."

Somehow the book remainds me that we can speak about G-d only through negation - of what he is not, not - what he is ....

The truth so often forgotten...

What is however unbelivable - how it could happen that someone in XII century would get to such thoughts, far deeper than tens of philosophers yet to come.....

If one wants to read the interview with the author its here.
