Fine in Very Good DJ. DJ has a small scratch on front panel and rear panel has a long scratch and a closed repaired tear at bottom edge . Philo of Alexandria (c. 25 BCE c. 50 CE) , also called Philo Judaeus, was a Hellenistic Jewish philosopher who lived in Alexandria, in the Roman province of Egypt. Philo used philosophical allegory to attempt to fuse and harmonize Greek philosophy with Jewish philosophy. His method followed the practices of both Jewish exegesis and Stoic philosophy. His allegorical exegesis was important for several Christian Church Fathers, but he has barely any reception history within Rabbinic Judaism. He believed that literal interpretations of the Hebrew Bible would stifle humanity's view and perception of a God too complex and marvelous to be understood in literal human terms ISBN: 0943575931 (Ancient Philosophy, Judaism, Jewish Philosophy)
