Are the comments of Tosfos in the same Mesechta generally considered to be aligned, meaning that, if there is an apparent contradiction, we try and look for a resolution?

How about Tosfos in different Mesechtas?


I recall a place in Bava Kamma where R' Akiva Eiger points out that Tosfos in two different chapters are clearly saying opposite things -- and we just assume that was due to two different authors/editors.

  • that happens a lot, I'll just give one more example the second gilyon hashas on daf 2. berachos, and meforshim on him explain how their is no contradiction between the tosfos, so that is not a conclusive proof – termsofservice Dec 4 '13 at 22:40
