Description

Justice Haim Cohn, of the Supreme Court of Israel, claims that justice must be individualized according to time, place, and person in order to fulfill its function in the administration of the law, a thesis of adaptability which he defends in the light of other panelists' arguments in favor of a universal principle of meta-justice. Participants include Jerald Brauer, Rick Carlson, Emil L. Fackenheim, Norton Ginsburg, Robert Gordis, Alfred Gottschalk, Robert M. Hutchins, Jacob Petuchowsky, Lord Ritchie-Calder, Ellis Rivkin, Nathan Rotenstreich, Gershom G. Scholem, R.J. Zwi Werblowski, and John Wilkinson. Jewish Traditions II. Sept. 10, 1973.
