Great quote from R’YBS in the new “Halachic Morality” essay “That is why there was no pesak halakhah, no authoritative halakhic ruling, in matters of morality, and why no controversy on moral issues was resolved by the masorah in accordance with the rule of the majority, in the same manner as all disagreements pertaining to halakhic law were terminated. For pesak halakhah would imply standardization of practices, a thing which would contradict the very essence of morality. [Me – still being debated today, especially what are the boundaries of acceptable halachik morality.]

Fascinating presentation of some early study work, perhaps explaining the medrash of Pharoh trying a blood transfer to cure himself.
