In Defense of "An Eye for an Eye"
Lex talionis, the law of retaliation, may be one of the most maligned principles in the Torah. What is it about? What motivates it? In what ways does it actually make a lot of sense? We'll analyze the original source material in the Torah and a string of Rabbinic interpretations in order to make sense of this controversial and surprisingly elusive principle.
