Course syllabus / YU only
►Readings in the maran haRav ztl''s major writings, with emphasis on "those that students are afraid to tackle on their own." The lecture will supply background material and contrast in general and Jewish philosophical reflection. The Honors version of the course will devote special attention to interdisciplinary dimensions. ►We will begin with Halakhic Man. U-Vikkashtem, because of its centrality and difficulty [though my article Tradition Summer 2008 will save us some time]. Lonely Man you will probably be reading on your own (see outline). Ma Dodekh miDod and Halakhic Mind will also be subjects of lecture. We will devote serious attention to Emergence of Ethical Man. I hope to spend time on the recently published Halakhic Morality. Other material will be determined by time and interest.
