Hermeneutical Theory 1

KNB6930HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2009  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

'Hermeneutics' is a general term embracing a great variety of theories and methods, all concerned with interpreting the meaning of texts. Hermeneutical theories construct, in different ways, the authority of the author, the status of the reader, the nature of the textuality, and the relation of the text to the original context and the contemporary world. The purpose of this course is to provide the students with the opportunity: 1) to compare and contrast a range of hermeneutical theories; 2) to apply these theories to the interpretation of particular biblical texts, and 3) to give students the opportunity to develop and reflect on their own interpretive practice, and be able to situate this practice in relation to the range of theories and practices studied in class. Lecture and seminar. 3 journal submissions, essay, class participation. Prerequisite: Greek Exegesis
