Although questions surrounding divine command ethics have a long pedigree within the history of philosophy and the history of religious thought, philosophers of religion have paid increasing attention to these issues in recent decades, with several important works appearing in the 1980s and 1990s. However, the recent literature has contained little systematic discussion of the perspective of Jewish tradition on divine command ethics, certainly in English. This book aims to provide an extensive discussion of this kind, while developing a position that is distinct from, and critical of, other views that have recently been advanced in Jewish scholarship concerning the stance of Jewish tradition on divine command ethics.
