Jonathan Schofer offers the first theoretically framed examination of rabbinic ethics in several decades. Centering on one influential anthology, The Fathers according to Rabbi Nathan, Jonathan Schofer situates that text within a broader spectrum of rabbinic thought, while bringing rabbinic thought into dialogue with current scholarship on the self, ethics, theology, and the history of religions.
