Yesterday, Nachum Segal interviewed R. J. David Bleich and R. Daniel Z. Feldman about R. Bleich’s recent book, The Philosophical Quest: Of Philosophy, Ethics, Law and Halakhah. Some very interesting discussion, including whether Spinoza was a Jewish philosopher. Also a heads-up about an English book by R. Mordechai Willig that has already gone to press.
