article description
P. and R. examine the story of Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac (Genesis 22) in light of Jewish, Christian and Muslim perspectives. They conclude that according to these perspectives, Abraham was not, in fact, breaking the Kantian principle of 'the primacy of practical [moral] reasoning over any theoretical interpretation of objective experiences or religious rules' (p. 496).
