Regulating ‘sons’ and ‘daughters’ in the Torah and in Proverbs: Some Preliminary Insights

  • Athalya Brenner

Abstract

This essay traces, in general lines, how the regulations a society presents as normative may reveal its deepest uncertainties, more so than its implied praxis. The case study chosen will be a vertical (chronologically and textually intersecting) as well as horizontal enquiry (from the Torah to Proverbs) into gendered regulations concerning second-generation members of the community.
