Hermeneutics: Between Faith and Reason

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using the notion of the “in-between (Ins-Zwischen) as its primary focus, this paper argues that whereas hermeneutic practice has customarily been deployed to better understand the claims of religious texts, once hermeneutic practice itself becomes the object of understanding, then the practice emerges in its own right as a discipline for occasioning meditative thinking. How hermeneutic practice transforms itself into such a vehicle is the subject of this paper.
