Summary/Abstract: The article is drawn from the author’s meeting with Andalusia and Cordoba, the city of scholars and philosophers. It is the birthplace of three great philosophers representing three different philosophical and worldview traditions: Seneca, Averroes, and Moses Maimonides. Thus, the city is presented as an important meeting point between different religious and cultures. The article seeks the points of intersection between the traditions embodied by the three philosophers, and raises the problem of philosophical topoi. The author’s familiarity with a variety of sources makes the text a captivating and lively introduction to the cultural heritage of Cordoba and the lives and works of the three great philosophers born there
