  3. An Introduction to the History and Sources of Jewish Law.N. S. Hecht, B. S. Jackson, S. M. Passamaneck, Daniela Piattelli & Alfredo Rabello (eds.) - 1996 - Oxford, UK: Oxford University Press UK.
    Jewish law has a history stretching from the early period to the modern State of Israel, encompassing the Talmud, Geonic and later codifications, the Spanish Golden Age, medieval and modern responsa, the Holocaust and modern reforms. Fifteen distinct periods are separately studied in this volume, each one by a leading specialist, and the emphasis throughout is on the development of the institutions and sources of the law.

  6. Philosophy of Law: Secular and Religious (with Some Reference to Jewish Family Law).Bernard S. Jackson - 2015 - In Alison Diduck, Noam Peleg & Helen Reece (eds.), Law In Society: Reflections on Children, Family, Culture and Philosophy. Essays in Honour of Michael Freeman. Leiden: Brill. pp. 45-62.
    Despite the efforts of some modern Jewish law scholars, it is difficult to apply models of secular jurisprudence (whether positivist or Dworkinian) to the Jewish legal system. Internal analysis suggests that the “secondary rules” of the system are far too fragile. Rather, the system appears to privilege trust over objectively determinable truth. (But perhaps trust is a concept to which greater attention should be paid also in secular jurisprudence, as a legal realism informed by semiotics might maintain.) The (...)

    Competition in Consumption as Viewed by Jewish Law.Yehoshua Liebermann - 1985 - Journal of Business Ethics 4 (5):385-393.
    Competition is the most basic force traditionally regarded by Western economists as governing both society's resources allocation and income distribution. No wonder, then, that many legal systems have been concerned with various aspects of competitive activity, and formulated laws and rulings to keep market behavior within limits of ethical conduct. Jewish law has not been an exception. The focus of this paper is on competition in consumption. Its underlying assumption is that lawmakers' decisions approximate optimality in resource allocation. The (...)

    Prenatal Screening in Jewish Law.J. Brown - 1990 - Journal of Medical Ethics 16 (2):75-80.
    Although prenatal screening is routinely undertaken as part of a woman's antenatal care, the ethics surrounding it are complex. In this paper, the author examines the Jewish position on the permissibility of several tests, including those for Down's syndrome and Tay-Sachs disease, the latter being especially common in the Jewish community. Clearly, the status of the tests depends on whether termination of affected pregnancies is allowed, and contemporary rabbinical authorities are themselves in dispute as to the permissibility of (...)

    Beyond the Janus Face of Zionist Legalism: The Theo-Political Conditions of the Jewish Law Project.Joseph E. David - 2005 - Ratio Juris 18 (2):206-235.
    . What are the assumptions that underline the Jewish Law Project? To what extent is this project relates to Zionism as a political program and national vision? Does the secular version of this project and the religious one have anything in common? I argue that aside from the ideological lines that guide the Jewish Law Project, within it rests a reductionist and utopianist stance vis‐à‐vis halakhah which are considered to be obvious. I shall attempt to claim that reductionism (...)

    The article surveys and analyzes the roles in Judaism of the value of imago Dei/human dignity, especially in bioethical contexts. Two main topics are discussed. The first is a comparative analysis of imago Dei as an anthropological and ethical concept in Jewish and Western thought (Christianity and secular European values). The Jewish tradition highlights the human body and especially its procreative function and external appearance as central to imago Dei. The second is the role of imago Dei as (...)

    The Humility of Hypocrisy on the Irenic Illiberalism of Jewish Law.Alick Isaacs - 2009 - Common Knowledge 15 (2):229-268.
    Following directly upon an account of the author's personal experiences as a young soldier in Gaza during the course of the first intifada in 1987, this essay is an attempt to “cash in” rabbinic statements that present the entire Torah as a path to peace. The essay suggests that the genre of rabbinic debate—rather than the specific content of rabbinic statements—can be understood as peaceful. The study of halakhic literature, which is generally understood either as designed to clarify and quantify (...)
