Philosophy of the Law: The Political in the Torah (2011)

Shmuel Trigano

Trigano is one of the greatest Jewish philosophers and theologians of our time, and Philosophy of the Law: The Political in the Torah is his masterwork. Through biblical exegesis and philosophical examination, he seeks to understand the nature of the political in Judaism, and especially in its founding text, the Hebrew Bible. The core of this work is the study of the Torah and the Hebrew language are at the core of this work, but what is at stake is their topicality to the important issue of the political in our day. An Introduction by the leading Jewish philosopher David Novak introduces Trigano’s work, translated from the French, to an English-speaking audience.
