From the Inside Flap
A true intellectual adventure; controversial to some, disquieting to many, stimulating to all. From one of the world's foremost Jewish thinkers, here is the first volume of a genre-shattering series that opens to the public the startling sophistication of Torah thought. Matis Weinberg does for Torah what Stephen Gould does for evolutionary biology, what Martin Gardner does for mathematics; each sharing his passion and wonder, involving the reader in the inner workings of a different way of looking at the universe. True to the Torah's rigorous methodology, drawing deeply on the physical sciences and biology, on psychology, philosophy, literature and arts, Weinberg weaves a gradually a emerging blueprint of reality that reveals Torah's elegant, exciting, and profoundly authentic framework for perceiving the world.
Prepare yourself for a roller coaster ride through the parashot, moving deftly from the dawn of history to the very frontiers of contemporary thought, in a journey that will challenge, surprise, and move you. Entertaining, insightful, provocative and evocative, "Frame Works" is that rare book with the potential to open new doors to understanding the world in which we live.
