Abstract

The author argues for a distinction in four hermeneutical types in the struggle over right interpretation of the Bible. These approaches are dubbed respectively . The first two options are typically modern and foundationalist whereas the latter approaches are postmodern and antifoundationalist. To avoid relativism, we need a normative interpretation but not an authoritarian one. Reading the Bible as scripture is to interpret the world and oneself. Because the meaning of a text is always open-ended, the meaning of scripture is always the fruit of an interpretative act which implies the hermeneutical imperative.
