comment Why is resurection of the dead a fundamental of faith according to the Rambam?
The Mishnah at the beginning of the last (or second to last, depending on your edition) says that one who does not believe in the ressurection has no part in the world to come. I don't know why the Mishnah says it, but it is certainly a principle. However, the Mishnah does not say that someone who doesn't believe in divine retribution has no part in the world to come. That is added in the Gemara.

The principle about the ressurection in not that "we must believe that god rewards and punishes in the form of ressurection". It is simply that we must believe that god will resurrect. However, there is ANOTHER principle, and that is the belief in Divine reward and punishment.

@Yishai, והיסוד האחד עשר שהוא יתעלה משלם גמול טוב למי שמקיים מצות התורה, ומעניש מי שעובר על אזהרותיה, ושגמולו הגדול הוא העולם הבא, ועונשו החמור הכרת.

the rambam has עולם הבא as an עיקר! why is there a question just because he says that it's after תחיית המתים?

comment What is the Pilpul method of learning?
i thought that i posted this, but it didn't go up. shmuel: the way to describe the difference between Brisker and Pilpul lomdus is the following: Briskers will break down one concept into it's componests and say that one part is inherent (חפצא) and another is not (גברא). a student of pilpul will say that two tanaim/amoraim are arguing in a certain concept is inherent or not.

comment What is the Pilpul method of learning?
Yishai: in pilpul, each sugya usually represents one concept. Several sugyos are then compiled that either agree with each other or do not. This is what I mean by "smashing"; it is like ורמינהו on a large scale.
