Operational Hermeneutics: Interpretation as the Engagement of Operational Artifacts
by Dr. Aref Ali Nayed
With a Foreword by PROFESSOR JEFF MITSCHERLING
In this book, the author, a leading Muslim theologian, proposes an alternative model of texts and interpretative activities that proceed from an acknowledgement of their variety. Through an in-depth study of the variety of interpretive types and the works of Schleiermacher, Betti, Hirsch and Gadamer, the author elaborates an ‘Operational Hermeneutics’ that is able to overcome key aporiae in hermeneutic theory.
