Latin Table of Contents from the Hebrew Work of Menasseh ben Israel, Nishmat Chajjim
For various reasons, Menasseh Ben Israel was deeply interested in the problems with regard to the nature, the immortality and the pre-existence of the human soul. What he wrote on the subject, shows Kabbalist and Neoplatonist influences. His expositions on these questions, as they are to be found in some of his Latin works (De creatione problematu XXX, Amstelodami 1635, and De resurrectione mortuorum Libri III, Amstelodami 1636), were also appreciated by Christian theologians such as the Cambridge Platonist Henry More.
