What Is Talmud?

Sergey Dolgopolski

Fordham University Press

This chapter analyzes the Talmud as an intellectual project in one specific historical moment of its emergence—the 15th-century work of Rabbi Izhak Canpanton of Castalia, also known as the Gaon of Castalia, and his followers. It situates the work of Canpanton with regard to the arts of logic, dialectics, and rhetoric in the Aristotelian philosophical tradition and to the Talmud of the later Talmudic masters, who acted anonymously in the last generations before the Talmud was closed to any further additions.

Keywords:   Talmud, intellectual project, Rabbi Izhak Canpanton, Gaon of Castalia, arts of logic, dialectics, Aristotelian philosophy, Talmudic masters
