Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the context of Talmud in philosophy and rhetorical theory. It shows the periphery that philosophy has allowed for both rhetoric and the Talmud on the map of Western metaphysics, on which philosophy itself was always at the center. Given the complex and unstable relationships between philosophy and rhetoric on this map, the chapter asks where, in the account of those relationships, the Talmud can stand.

Keywords: Talmud; philosophy; rhetorical theory; Western metaphysics; Talmudic learning
