Overview

A three part set of monographs on the coherence of Rabbinic Judaism in its literature: Part one: In the Rabbinic literature of late antiquity disputes and alternative interpretations of a common datum form a medium of expressing coherence. Part two, system over self, asks about the role of individual sayings and traditions. The Bavli imposes on received sayings and stories its forms and topical Halakhic program.

With adequately classified data in hand, we may describe the generative logic of Talmudic analysis as that exegetical and analytical process unfolding in sequences is signified by the requirements of a pure, atemporal dialectics.
