This work is based on Ma'amar Ha'Ikarim - "Essay on Fundamentals," by R. Moshe Chayim Luzzatto zt"l (1707-1746), born in Padua, Italy, and died at the age of 39 in Eretz Yisrael. [A broader treatment, in even more depth and detailed structure but in a similar format, can be found in Derech Hashem - "The Way of G-d," by the same author. The study of it should follow the briefer selection presented here. Feldheim Publishers has available an extensively annotated English translation of superb quality by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan z"l.

The next step towards more advanced study would be Luzzato's Da'as Tevunos, available from Feldheim with English translation by Shraga Silverstein, entitled The Knowing Heart. It goes even further and focuses on the ultimate destiny of the Jewish People and why theirs is so different from that of the other nations of the world. However, since it is a difficult work, most people will get little out of it if they study it alone. It should be studied under the guidance of a teacher or a tutor who has mastered the material.]
