Question:

I’ve heard many conflicting opinions as to who should, or should not learn the Rambam’s Moreh Nevuchim, is there an audience that it wouldn’t be appropriate for? Is there any reason one should not learn it?

Answer:

Nowadays there are many that are of the opinion that we should not learn Moreh Nivuchim. The reason they say this is because it is philosophical sefer that deals with emunah, and nowadays a person learning it, can make mistakes. If someone has to deal with these issues, which most of us don’t, then why should he bring up question that weren’t bothering him. Even if they are answered, but if it is in a way that is not suited for him, and he won’t understand it clearly, he might be left only with the question, which can be dangerous.
