Textual Reasoning: Jewish Text Study and Philosophy

To support a conference on emergent trends in Jewish textual scholarship, philosophy, and theology.

"Textual Reasoning" is a project of cooperative study among Jewish text scholars and philosophers, culminating in a major conference on rabbinic notions of "Torah study" and on what may prove to be a new paradigm of Jewish academic study. Rather than divide the different forms of academic study, this paradigm redescribes them as different but complementary "textual reasonings." The paradigm may apply, as well, top academic work in other fields of Religious Studies.
