Abstract

The article is based on the assumption that Ish Ha-Halakha reflects Soloveitchik's grandfather and father, the "Brisker Rav" and his son. Thus, Halakha means analytical Lituanian studying of the Talmud and Rambam's Code. According to this attitude, Ish Ha-Halakha sees the analytical process as the only perspective of reality. He therefore rejects religious concepts, as Messianism and afterlife, and interprets them as allegorical and symbolic concepts.
