Unbinding traditions: rhetoric, hermeneutics, and the Akedah

Butcher, Joshua Thomas 15 May 2009 (has links)
This thesis explores and explicates the relationship between rhetoric and hermeneutics in two separate contexts: Jewish and Christian hermeneutic traditions, and secular philosophical hermeneutics. The impetus for this division is an analysis of Kierkegaard’s work, Fear and Trembling, which contains interpretations of the story of Genesis 22, the binding of Isaac; this event is referred to in the Jewish tradition as the Akedah. Kierkegaard’s own position as a Christian, philosopher and poet situate him on the dividing line between Christian and Jewish hermeneutics, as well as secular philosophical hermeneutic positions. To show these connections, the thesis undertakes two necessary literature reviews: a review of the current theoretical positions on the status of meaning, interpretation, and how rhetoric and hermeneutics intersect; and a review of the history of interpretations of the Akedah in Christian and Jewish traditions. Out of the first review come three separate and general categories of secular hermeneutics: intentionalist, phenomenological, and deconstructive. Within each of these positions is a different understanding and application of rhetoric. Similarly, the second review reveals differences between Jewish and Christian hermeneutics which contain separate understandings and applications of rhetoric. Kierkegaard’s own interpretation is situated within these contexts. Finally, modern Jewish responses to Kierkegaard are examined to further explicate the differences between Jewish and Christian hermeneutics as well as the separate philosophical positions. This is done through an analysis of Levinas’ and Derrida’s separate critiques and appropriations of Kierkegaard’s interpretation of the Akedah in Fear and Trembling. The conclusion drawn from these reviews and analyses is that intentionalist hermeneutics has the most comprehensive understanding and application of classical rhetoric, which in turn makes intentionalist hermeneutics the most capable of preserving the possibility of rhetorical agency.

Hermeneutics and the church : in dialogue with Augustine

Andrews, James A. January 2009 (has links)
This thesis sets out to contribute to two fields: Augustinian studies, particularly on De doctrina christiana, and theology, specifically biblical interpretation. To do so, it puts Augustine’s text into dialogue with contemporary theological hermeneutics. The dialogical nature of the exercise allows him to remain a living voice, speaking from outside, providing resources to move beyond the current debates about the use of theology in biblical interpretation. Such a dialogue requires understanding Augustine’s text well while also grasping the existing situation. This thesis therefore explores De doctrina, engaging with typical debates and seeking to hear Augustine’s voice through the words of the text. Thereafter, his hermeneutical treatise is put into dialogue with two contemporary theologians, Werner Jeanrond and Stephen Fowl. I categorize Augustine’s text as an a posteriori hermeneutics in contrast to Jeanrond’s a priori hermeneutics. That is, Augustine does not conceive of his theory as a constraint to a logically subsequent practice in the way Jeanrond does. At the same time, Augustine does not write a strictly local hermeneutics. He can be flexible and eclectic, utilizing philosophy without subordinating theology. Still, the nature of his hermeneutics requires the ecclesial community, a commitment that brings him close to Fowl. In contrast to Fowl, however, Augustine still has much to say about the text’s voice in the words of the authors of scripture. Scriptural interpretation engenders virtue for Augustine, whereas for Fowl, the lack of virtue in the church inhibits interpretation. Above all, I argue on the basis of De doctrina that the paradigm for theological interpretation is the sermon and that its end is to engender the double love of God and neighbor.

Learning from Misunderstanding: The Application of Hermeneutics in the University

Milam, Alan Clayton 2010 August 1900 (has links)
In this thesis I examine the rectoral address of both Martin Heidegger and Hans-Georg Gadamer to articulate their vision of education as well as the role the university plays in this vision. As a student of Heidegger, Gadamer departs from a similar conceptual ground. However, Gadamer parts way with Heidegger when he emphasizes the role of prejudices in understanding. This subtle distinction equips Gadamer’s hermeneutical project to encounter the role of the American University flexibly. I argue that by viewing both of these addresses alongside their historical context we not only gain a nuanced understanding of Gadamer’s departure from Heidegger but we also gain an important turn in the hermeneutical project. Because Gadamer emphasizes prejudices as a condition of understanding, his hermeneutical project necessitates an inquiry into the historical circumstances that gave rise to the questions he sought to address. His emphasis on the historicity of understanding effectively allows us to test which aspects of the hermeneutical project are viable for the American university. I argue that while many aspects of Gadamer’s philosophy of education are broadly aligned with many American institutional goals, he does not address the issue of race in higher education. I conclude by arguing that if the hermeneutic project is to move beyond Gadamer’s historical circumstances, and apply viably to any American context, then it must deal with the problems of racism as an everyday occurrence.
