Natural Law in Judaismby David Novak
Pub. Date: 01/21/2008
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Most people have assumed that since Judaism seems to consist of a specific historical revelation and a specific tradition, that an idea like 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.
