Chaim Saiman, Professor of Law at the Charles Widger School of Law, Villanova University, will discuss his recent book, "Halakhah: The Rabbinic Idea of Law" (Princeton University Press, 2018). "In this panoramic book, he traces how generations of rabbis have used concepts forged in talmudic disputation to do the work that other societies assign not only to philosophy, political theory, theology, and ethics but also to art, drama, and literature." Co-sponsored by Duke Law School and the Duke Center for Jewish Studies.
