Truth, Debate, and Traditional Jewish Thought free pdf How have Jewish thinkers accounted for the presence of disagreement and debate about concepts and laws in a system governed by the presumption of divine, and thus perfect, revelation? This collection of essays-with contributions from Rabbi Dr. Barry Freundel, Dr. Adam S. Cohen, Dr. Jeffrey S. Helmreich, Dr. Wiliam Kolbrener, and Rabbi Shlomo Dov Rosen and with a preface by Leon Wieseltier-address the intellectual and practical roots of this question as well as the philosophical and legal implications for the history of Jewish thought and practice. At stake is not only an appreciation of the proper role of debate within Jewish life and tradition, but also the fundamental question of how to define and understand the nature of "truth" itself.
