[Origin of the Idea and of the Methods of Hermeneutics]

Chapter
Part of the Contributions To Phenomenology book series (CTPH, volume 98)

Abstract

Shpet here introduces the theme of his text, which is to understand the role of the “word,” broadly understood to include even whole passages of text. Questions concerning hermeneutics arose historically from attempts to understand interpretation with regard to the practical demands of pedagogy, morality, and even politics. Shpet traces here the development of hermeneutics forward through Origen and Augustine.
