About the Book

Logic in the Talmud is a ‘thematic compilation’ by Avi Sion. It collects in one volume essays that he has written on this subject in Judaic Logic (1995) and A Fortiori Logic (2013), in which traces of logic in the Talmud (the Mishna and Gemara) are identified and analyzed. While this book does not constitute an exhaustive study of logic in the Talmud, it is a ground-breaking and extensive study.


There is a big difference between authentic logic studies, aimed at uncovering the facts of the case, whatever they happen to be; and make-believe studies, aimed at defending some religious or other ideological doctrine. The one is methodologically fully scientific; the other is essentially biased and apologetic. The results of these two pursuits, naturally, differ considerably. The former throws light on all relevant issues and findings, impartially; the latter emphasizes positive aspects and ignores or conceals negative aspects. The researcher in this field must consciously decide at the outset which of these two approaches he (or she) will adopt; whether his loyalty is ultimately to reality or to some given doctrine.
