Prior to Abelard, philosophy in the Middle Ages had not been an exclusively academic affair. It had been addressed for the most part to any well educated reader interested in the topics being discussed The Problem of Space in Jewish Mediaeval Philosophy.

The claim of the philosophers that sensuous pleasures and pains, as depicted in the Qur’an, are no more than allegories intended for the edification of the masses is very tenuous, and the analogy between the passages in the Qur’an that describe them and the passages that refer to God in anthropomorphic terms is not a sound analogy.
