Description

In this carefully crafted collection of essays, "Jewish Thought in Dialogue" offers creative interpretations of major Jewish texts and as well as original treatments of significant issues in Jewish theology and ethics. The collection includes philosophical readings of biblical narratives, analyses of topics in the thought of Maimonides, Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook and Rabbi Joseph B Soloveitchik, and critical and constructive examinations of divine providence, religious anthropology, free will, 9/11, evil, Halakhah and morality, altruism, autonomy in Jewish medical ethics, and the epistemology of religious belief. The author frequently brings Jewish philosophy and law into dialogue with contemporary Anglo-American philosophy.

Author Biography

David Shatz (Ph.D. Columbia University) is Professor of Philosophy at Yeshiva University. He has authored, edited, co-edited twelve books, dealing with both Jewish and general philosophy. His books include Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook and Jewish Spirituality; Judaism, Science and Moral Responsibility; Peer Review: A Critical Inquiry; and three anthologies in philosophy of the religion. His work in general philosophy focuses on the theory of knowledge, free will, and the philosophy of religion, while his work in Jewish philosophy addresses a variety of areas, most represented in this volume. He is editor of The Torah u-Madda Journal, a publication devoted to the interaction between Jewish and general culture, and editor of a book series, thus far ten volumes, that produces previously unpublished manuscripts of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik. He earned his Ph.D with distinction in general philosophy from Columbia University and ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.
