The Interaction of Jewish Law With Psychology and Biology By David Schatz and Joel B. Wolowelsky Publisher: Ktav, 2004
The essays in this volume focus primarily on the interaction of Torah with the disciplines of psychology and biology. The first section deals with the more general issue of science and religion. Three prominent scholars with recognized expertise in the secular disciplines discuss the general issue, followed by a prominent scientist with extensive training in Torah discussing the more specific question of evolution. The second secti on , Judaism and Mental Heath Foru m : A Fictional Case with Commentaries, explores the issue of psychology and religion through a series of responses to a fictional case in which a psychiatrist unfamiliar with Orthodox Judaism attempts to treat an obsessed religious personality. The final secti ons deal with the interf ace bet ween biology and religion .
