Dialogue and "distance": Cognitive-developmental theories and the teaching of Talmud

By Jeffrey S. Kress, Marjorie Lehman

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), 2004

The style of the Talmud is not only consistent with a particular theological perspective on "truth," but also with what we know to be an important cognitive process.
