Most legal systems are rooted in some philosophy or view of life, but few religious have generated a legal system covering the non-religious aspects of life from their own religious philosophy. Of the few that have produced such legal codes, Judaism is perhaps the most-law-oriented. But though much has been published on Judaism's legal aspects, little of it relates to the coordination of its legal and theological sides. It is therefore altogether appropriate that Rabbi Emmanuel Rackman, one of the few who has, is a trained lawyer as well as a rabbi. In this volume, Dr. Rackman brings together some of his most ground-breaking essays on the legal philosophy of Judaism. Among the articles appearing in this collection are,"Theocentricity in Jewish Law," "Legal Sanctions for Moral Obligations," "Violence and the Value of Life: The Halachic View," "A Jewish Philosophy of Property: Rabbinic Insights on Intestate Succession," and "Privacy in Judaism."
