Our work consists in formulating the status of the foetus based on texts which deal with the question indirectly, due to the absence of an explicit law defining its status. The question of the foetus is not covered head on in our corpus; but it is talked about nevertheless in different areas of daily life : we will see how our authors take the fœtus into account within the framework of different issues which relate to it. It is mainly through halachic literature that we can define the status of the foetus which, despite some legal capacity, does not attain that of the mother; we also think that even haggadic literature confirms this, even though it appears to attribute a "soul" or even a "conscience" to the foetus.

Good work Eric Fitoussi !
This book should be red by everybody. It contains answers to modern questions. It was easy to read inspite of the different texts that seems quite hard. A huge introduction puts the reader in the different fields of the question. I understand why the author achieve his work in more than five years....
