After writingJudaic Logic, I wrote little on related matters, even though my personal theological opinions further evolved. However, I wrote three short works, which I present here.


The first,Jewish Logic: A Brief History and Evaluation, was written soon afterJudaic Logic, to correct an essay on the same subject I had written five years before at the conclusion of myFuture Logicresearch work. That essay had been written in a fit of religious enthusiasm and lacked objectivity, and so needed correction.


The second,Le raisonnement talmudique, was written in 1999 after giving a conference on the subject in Geneva. This was one of my only attempts to write in French (my mother tongue). This work is an important adjunct toJudaic Logic, in that it summarises and simplifies some of the material in it. In particular, the validation processes fora fortioriargument are much simplified and some of the thirteenmidotare much clarified by means of diagrams.


Lastly,Islamic Logic, consisting of three essaysHermeneutics,Structure of the LawandPhilosophie(the latter in French), was written at about the same time, as preparatory notes for a series of lectures on philosophy delivered to a group of some twenty students at the Université populaire de Genève.
