Logical and Spiritual Reflections is a collection of six shorter philosophical works, in two parts. The first part, consisting of Logical Reflections, includes: Hume's Problems with Induction, which is intended to describe and refute some of the main doubts and objections David Hume raised with regard to inductive reasoning; A Short Critique of Kant's Unreason, which is a brief critical analysis of some of the salient epistemological and ontological ideas and theses in Immanuel Kant's famous Critique of Pure Reason; and In Defense of Aristotle's Laws of Thought, which addresses, from a phenomenological standpoint, numerous modern and Buddhist objections and misconceptions regarding the basic principles of Aristotelian logic. The second part, consisting of Spiritual Reflections, includes: More Meditations, which is a sequel to the author's earlier work, Meditations; Zen Judaism, which is a frank reflection on the tensions between reason and faith in today's context of knowledge, and on the need to inject Zen-like meditation into Judaism; and No to Sodom, which is an essay against homosexuality, using biological, psychological, spiritual, ethical and political arguments.
