7. Citation from Philosopher's Index

In Database: The Philosopher's Index 1940-2005/09
TITLE: "The Bible As a Source for Philosophical Reflection" in History of Jewish Philosophy (Routledge History of World Philosophies Volume II), Frank, Daniel H (ed), 13-37
AUTHOR: Carmy,-Shalom ; Shatz,-David
PUBLICATION INFORMATION: Routledge : New York, 2003
ABSTRACT: While the Bible is a book of law, poetry and narrative, it also engages philosophical issues. In this essay we examine biblical perspectives on morality, evil, free will and divine providence, and the origins of the universe. We argue that while there are certainly many other sources of Jewish philosophy, the Bible is indeed an important book for Jewish philosophical reflection.
