Conference at UCI on Tuesday, April 24. (My last big event for Jewish Studies this year!!)
Links concerning the topic:
My son the doctor. Very thoughtful account of Maimonides and others on tensions between rational care of the body and preservation of life and God’s will. “Throughout the Jewish tradition, one is aware of the tension between the concept of God’s omnipotent will and the concept of humankind’s free will, manifest in an unspoken compromise that leaves the care of the body to man. In this matter, the intervention of God is not to be assumed.”
