Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the fourth stage of the diaporematic method as implemented in the Wars of the Lord-the solution of the Aporias. In the introduction, Gersonides presents six philosophical and philosophical-theological questions and two theological questions addressed here. The discussion of God's knowledge is based on earlier opinions; but when he reaches the solution Gersonides substitutes his own arguments for the historical arguments that support the view that God has knowledge of particulars. In all of the inquiries conducted under the shadow of the diaporematic method, its use guarantees that the solution reached by Gersonides is not only the truth but certain truth, "achieved so that no doubt remains"..
