This chapter discusses the ethical views of medieval Jewish philosophers, showing that the varieties of Jewish philosophy in the medieval period defy easy categorization, let alone condensation into a single notion of Jewish ethics. Scholars surveyed include Saadia Gaon, Solomon ibn Gabirol, Bahya ibn Paquda, Judah Halevi, Abraham ibn Ezra, Abraham ibn Daud, Moses Maimonides, Levi Gersonides, Jedaiah Bedersi, Hesdai Crescas, Joseph Albo, and Joseph ibn Shemtob.

Keywords: Saadia Gaon; Solomon ibn Gabirol; Bahya ibn Paquda; Judah Halevi; Abraham ibn Ezra; Abraham ibn Daud; Moses Maimonides; Levi Gersonides; Jedaiah Bedersi; Hesdai Crescas
