Item description for Natural Law in Judaism by David Novak...

Natural law is the idea that our basic moral principles apply to every human being, and are accessible to human reason. Most people have assumed that since Judaism seems to consist of a specific historical revelation and a specific tradition, that an idea such as natural law is foreign to it. This book shows that natural law is part of Judaism, and that it is consistent with its specific revelation and tradition. In this book, not only is the history of an idea shown with great accuracy, but the idea of natural law is presented as a way of conveying some of Judaism's meaning for life today.

Publishers Description
In this study of Judaism, philosophy and comparative ethics, the author argues that the assumption that Judaism has no natural law theory to speak of, held by the vast majority of scholars, is simply wrong. The text shows how natural law theory, using a variety of different terms for itself throughout the ages, has been a constant element in Jewish thought. It sorts out the varieties of Jewish natural law theory, illuminating their strengths and weaknesses. It also presents a case for utilizing natural law theory in order to deal with theological and philosophical questions in Judaism's ongoing reflection on its own meaning and its meaning for the wider world. David Novak combines erudition in the Jewish tradition, the history of philosophy and law, and the imagination to argue for Judaism in the context of debates both theoretical and practical.
