(Original title: Filozofická terminológia Koruny kráľovstva rabína Šlomo Ben Gabirola)
Filozofia, 63 (2008), 5, 427-432.
Type of work: Reflections
Publication language: Slovak

The paper deals with the philosophical terminology of the poem Royal Crown by the Jewish neo-Platonist Solomon ben Judah Gabirol (1022 – 1057). In the poem the influence of philosophy and science on Jewish liturgical poetry is reflected. The analysis of the poem leads the author to the conclusion, that it represents the synthetic character of Ibn Gabirol’s reasoning. It requires a special approach, which the author refers to as „synthetic analysis“.
