Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of selected references relevant to the analysis of the essay Halakhic Man that is written by Rabbi Joseph Baer Soloveitchik. Halakhic Man is introduced as a composite of cognitive man and homo religiosus (ish ha-dat). After a brief description of cognitive man, R. Soloveitchik defines homo religiosus and dwells at length on his characteristics. He also presents typical models of the homo religiosus type, illustrating them in historical figures such as Maimonides and Kant.

Keywords: cognitive man; Halakhic Man; homo religiosus; Kant; Maimonides; Rabbi Joseph Baer Soloveitchik
