The Milhamot is written in a precise and technical Hebrew. In almost all the questions analyzed, Levi quotes the opinions of his predecessors - Aristotle, Alexander of Aphrodisias, Themistius, Al-Farabi, Avicenna - with whom he became acquainted largely by reading Averroes, as well as the opinions of Averroes himself and of Maimonides. He enumerates the arguments that, respectively, support and disprove their theses and, finally, he expounds his own theory. The Milhamot contains an almost complete system of philosophy and theology. However, this work cannot be understood unless one is familiar with Ralbag's commentaries on Averroes and the Bible, which explain and complement the Milhamot on many points. In order to understand the ideas of Ralbag, one should have recourse to all his philosophical and exegetic works.
R. Levi b. Gershon (Ralbag)(1288–1344 also called Gersonides), mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and biblical commentator, born probably at Bagnols-sur-CIze, France. He lived primarily in Orange and briefly at Avignon. Levi had very broad intellectual interests and contributed to many areas of human learning.
