Perhaps the most prolific, and clearly the most able of the early Haskalah writers. This collection consists of treatises concerned with the sciences, aesthetics, poetry, etc. It is written in a style analogous to Immanuel of Rome’s Machberoth, a work that Satanov was to re-edit with additions of his own in 1796
