Natural Law

A Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Trialogue

Anver M. Emon, Matthew Levering, and David Novak

  • The three programmatic essays provide a sense for how natural law doctrine arises and functions in each tradition, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic.
  • The volume, as a whole, reflects upon natural law doctrine and the religious other, giving a sense for why this topic is important.
  • Each author responds to the other two authors, revealing the particular points of tension/interest between the traditions (and between the three authors).
  • Each essay includes extensive interaction with and reliance upon classical sources from the particular tradition, explaining the key sources and terms for natural law doctrine in these three traditions.
  • Footnotes provide key bibliographic resources for going further in the study of natural law doctrine in each of these traditions.
