This Article's main argument is that the roots of contemporary utilitarian analysis can be traced back to Jewish law sources, and that the ancient model can assist us in presenting a preliminary sketch of a modern model of pluralistic tort liability. Is it possible to create a virtual encounter and dialogue between two methods: the method of classic scholars of the economic analysis of tort law, such as Guido Calabresi-one of the founders of (tort) law and economics-and the method of Jewish tort law scholars, such as Talmudic sages and post-Talmudic decisors (Poskim), especially the "Great Eagle," Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon (Maimonides)?
