How to Determine the Meaning of a Sacred Text Cases and Methodologies
|Author: ||Williams, Jay G.|
This work applies many different approaches to the analysis of sacred texts. The articles contained in this collection are influenced by structuralism, phenomenology, the study of self-referentiality and Zen. In many cases, Eastern thought is applied to Western texts, and vice versa.
"...this collection serves as a personal intellectual memoir allowing us to see a particular case of the history of the study of religion at the end of and beginning of significant centuries."
