Solomon Ibn Gabirol (ca. 1021–ca. 1058)
Spanish-Hebrew poet and mystic philosopher. He was an
advocate of neoplatonism, but also ascribed to the via negativa,
the mystical doctrine that holds that the deity can only be understood
as a negation of all attributes (which are in themselves
limiting and human in our thoughts). He considered this view
essential to the preservation of Jewish monotheism.
