The main foci of this collection are theories of Rabbinic category-formation, on the one side, and literary-analytical problems, on the other. PART ONE: How a system such as animates the Rabbinic canon selects and organizes its data forms the key to understanding the cogency of the whole: what data register, what do not? PART TWO: The problems of literature now center on those compositions and even compositions of a given document that ignore the documentary protocol of the compilation in which they occur. PART THREE: The four ways in which an author of a composition for Rabbinic compilation could link sentence to sentence, thought to thought, to form a coherent statement thus the 'logics of coherent discourse.'
