Description

By pairing a scholar of Islamic law with a scholar of Jewish law, a unique dynamic is created. This new perspective not only provides a deeper understanding of the other's legal tradition, but it also reveals new insights into the one's own legal tradition, shedding light on what we had previously been too close to observe. Whether for the pursuit of advanced scholarship, pedagogic innovation in the classroom, or simply a greater appreciation of how to live in a multi-faith community, these encounters are richly-stimulating, demonstrating how legal tradition can be used as a common site for developing discussions and opening up diverse approaches to questions about law. Surrounded as we are by political, economic and social dilemmas, it offers a truly incisive model for considering the good, the right and the legal in our societies today. For a thoughtful but circumspect readership, Islamic and Jewish Legal Reasoning is essential.
