Abstract

This Article's main argument is that the roots of contemporary utilitarian analysis can be traced back to Jewish law sources, and that the ancient model can assist us in presenting a preliminary sketch of a modern model of pluralistic tort liability. Is it possible to create a virtual encounter and dialogue between two methods: the method of classic scholars of the economic analysis of tort law, such as Guido Calabresi-one of the founders of (tort) law and economics-and the method of Jewish tort law scholars, such as Talmudic sages and post-Talmudic decisors (Poskim), especially the "Great Eagle," Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon (Maimonides)?
