Ideas of Jens Zimmermann, by Text

[Canadian, fl. 2015, Professor of Humanities, Trinity Western University, Canada]

2015 Hermeneutics: a very short introduction
1 'Truth' p.13 We take part in objective truth, rather than observe it from a distance
2 'Husserl's' p.33 In phenomenology, all perception is 'seeing as'
3 'Beyond' p.53 Hermeneutic knowledge is not objective, but embraces interpretations
4 'How texts' p.67 The hermeneutic circle is between the reader's self-understanding, and the world of the text
5 'Inspiration' p.73 Traditionally, God dictated the Torah to Moses, unlike the later biblical writings
6 'Natural' p.108 Natural law theorists fear that without morality, law could be based on efficiency
