Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names relevant to the analysis of the essay Halakhic Man by Rabbi Joseph Baer Soloveitchik. R. Soloveitchik focuses on the character and on the spiritual and social implications that follow directly from the extreme idealist structure of halakhic cognition. Halakhic cognition yields a personality type that acts according to solid and absolute principles and resists compromise. Halakhic Man is a lonely type, lacking political or interpersonal flexibility and is thus unacceptable to society.

Keywords: Halakhic cognition; Halakhic Man; Rabbi Joseph Baer Soloveitchik
