Styles of Halakhic Ruling: A Mapping in Light of Joseph Schwab's Philosophy of Education
Rosenak, Avinoam
Journal of Jewish Education, v73 n2 p81-106 May 2007
This article notes a profound connection between the philosophy of Jewish law (halakhah) and the research of meta-halakah on the one hand and the philosophy of education on the other hand. The connection is, in principle, exemplified through an encounter between the educational philosophy of Joseph Schwab and the Jewish law (halakhic responsa literature). Following an elucidation of Schwab's deliberative model, the article examines the extent of the linkage between that model and halakhic thought. It considers three halakhic genres and provides illustrations of how Schwab's insights can contribute to an analysis of the responsa literature. (Contains 18 footnotes.)
