How to use ibn-Ezra in a sentence
If we may judge of the rest of the work by these Hebrew fragments, we should say that philosophy was not Ibn Ezra's forte.
We are interested here more particularly in Ibn Ezra's philosophical views.
But it is difficult from the fragmentary and laconic sayings of Ibn Ezra to extract a consistent and certain system.
In this way Ibn Ezra endeavors to reconcile natural law (or astrological fatalism) with the ethical purpose of divine providence.
What Ibn Ezra means by the Hebrew word "abad" (ordinarily rendered to perish, to be destroyed) is not clear.
