9780827605145: Ethics of Responsibility: Pluralistic Approaches to Covenantal Ethics

Unlike many traditional Jewish thinkers who contend that only halachic norms dictate matters of ethics and morality, Wurzburger argues that cultivation of an ethical personality is a religious imperative. This book bridges the gap between liberal Jewish philosophy and modern Orthodoxy.

From Library Journal:

A professor of ethics and an Orthodox rabbi, Wurzburger evaluates the relationship between human ethics and divine law. He explores the pluralistic ethics of Judaism and discusses the resolution of apparent conflicts through casuistry or the recognition of context and the application of ethical intuition. Wurzburger's chapter on moral dilemmas explores some of the most common areas where casuistry is needed to resolve conflicts of values, such as sanctity of life issues, environmental issues, allocation of healthcare, and the withholding of information. Recommended for academic and seminary libraries.
