This subject explores the history of hermeneutics, ranging from Ancient and Biblical through to Contemporary Philosophical and Theological Hermeneutics. The subject addresses the interpretation of texts, the issue of meaning, and the question of what it is to understand. Hermeneutics occupies the place between epistemology and methodology, and, studied at the advanced level, will equip students with the capacity to locate themselves in relation to their critical reading of texts.
