Overview

In this multi-faceted volume, Christian and other religiously committed
theorists find themselves at an uneasy point in history -- between premodernity,
modernity, and postmodernity -- where disciplines and methods, cultural and
linguistic traditions, and religious commitments tangle and cross. Here, leading
theorists explore the state of the art of the contemporary hermeneutical terrain. As
they address the work of Gadamer, Ricoeur, and Derrida, the essays collected in this
wide-ranging work engage key themes in philosophical hermeneutics, hermeneutics and
religion, hermeneutics and the other arts, hermeneutics and literature, and
hermeneutics and ethics. Readers will find lively exchanges and reflections that
meet the intellectual and philosophical challenges posed by hermeneutics at the
crossroads.
