Especially do we find this to be the case in Crescas who opposes Aristotle on philosophic grounds.
But even in his opposition Crescas leans on Maimonides's principles, which he takes up one by one and refutes.
Crescas, as we might naturally expect, agrees with Maimonides in this matter rather than with Gersonides.
Accordingly Crescas goes back to the religious doctrine of reward and punishment as ordinarily understood.
