This chapter explains that Elijah ben Solomon's worldview bears both Jewish and Greek philosophical sources. It argues that his ideas took form in an era typified by an attempt by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz to pinpoint a universally valid coherent system that could be justified by and contained within a first and Absolute Idea. Like Leibniz, Elijah believed that all components of experience emerge from, and can be understood by, human minds.
