Maimonides' premier work of philosophy, Dalālat al-Hā'irîn, also known by its Hebrew translation, Moreh Nevukhim (Guide for the Perplexed), is the most profound and well-known Jewish philosophical treatise of all time.  It was translated to Hebrew during Maimonides' lifetime, and with his oversight.  This fragment is a copy of the original Arabic text of the work.
