Historical Examples of crescas
Crescas appeared as if by magic—Psis act like that—and had me by the arm.Modus Vivendi

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.
In this discussion also Crescas takes issue with the intellectualistic point of view of Maimonides and particularly Gersonides.
