Robert Cover’s Passion

By Robert A Burt


Bob Cover was not content with the world. In his legal scholarship, this discontent expressed itself as a demand that law be \u22redemptive\u22 in its aspiration, acknowledging the \u22unredeemed character of reality as we know it\u22 and seeking to replace it with a \u22fundamentally different reality.\u22l Bob lived in this normative aspiration not only in his secular legal scholarship but in his absorbing involvement with Torah. Indeed, he would not recognize the secular and religious dimensions of law as distinct in any important sense. There was no part of Bob\u27s life-whether characterized as legal, religious, personal-that was not touched by his passion for redemptive transformation
