    The rest of the book contains meditations about time and eternity, and about how to read the first verses of the Book of Genesis. But if you can look through or put aside all the fourth-century philosophy, Confessions still has this bright thread of amazing autobiographical reflection running through it. Repentance is the activity of reviewing one's actions and feeling contrition or regret for past wrongs, which is accompanied by commitment to and actual actions that show and prove a change for the better. In Judaism and Christianity it is often defined as an action, turning away from self-serving activities and turning to God, to walk in His ways.

Harris)_ BOOKS EDITED: RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY: ESSAYS IN ETHICS, RELIGION .   Modern Judaism’s understanding of teshuvah comes from the medieval giant of Jewish law, ethics and philosophy, Maimonides, also called the Rambam.

    The present article tries to analyze the role played in Hans Jonas’ ethical reflection by religious—namely, Jewish—tradition. Jonas goes in search of an ultimate foundation for his ethics and his theory of the good in order to face the challenges currently posed by technology’s nihilistic attitude towards life and ethics.

He is author of Past Imperatives: Studies in the History and Theory of Jewish Ethics; An Introduction to Jewish Ethics; and the LifeLights™ pastoral care booklet Doing Teshuvah: Undoing Mistakes, Repairing Relationships and Finding Inner Peace (Jewish Lights).

JEWISH THOUGHT AND PHILOSOPHY: JEWISH ETHICAL LITERATURE. The Hebrew term sifrut ha-musar ("ethical literature") can be defined either very explicitly or in a general way.

In a more proscribed sense it is a well-defined literary genre; the works belonging to it are easily recognizable because each chapter in these books deals with a specific religious and theological subject — belief in the.

Jewish tradition does not mandate any particular way of organizing economic life. The biblical and rabbinic sources of Jewish law and ethics do insist, however, that relations between buyers and sellers, employers and employees, and borrowers and lenders should be regulated to prevent the weak from being exploited by the strong, and the uninformed falling prey to the well-informed.

As Dan notes, derash (i.e. midrash, homiletics, theology) is “ten times” more prominent than musar in Judaism. This essay is excerpted from Samuel J. Levine, Teshuva: A Look at Repentance, Forgiveness and Atonement in Jewish Law and Philosophy and American Legal Thought, 27 Fordham Urb.
