Refiguring Theological Hermeneutics: Hermes, Trickster, Fool

Refiguring Theological Hermeneutics: Hermes, Trickster, Fool By Marion Grau
2014 | 194 Pages | ISBN: 1137326859 | PDF | 6 MB

Hermeneutics can be said to be operative when something is not immediately intelligible. The divine, experiences of God and the sacred, are of course a notorious hermeneutical problem. How to render, translate, interpret the unintelligible, the infinitely untranslatable without indeed admitting to its impossibility? This book argues that interpretive agency has aspects that are represented by the figures of Hermes, trickster, and fool. These figures reveal, perform, and challenge the status quo of a society and its structures of power, knowledge and belief. As hermeneutical acts are notoriously multivalent, engagement with these figures can help reframe hermeneutical work as a vibrant reminder of the play between humility and courage in reinterpreting the divine through mythos and logos anew each day. These figures can help to reconstruct theology as mytho-logy in teaching us greater respect for the dynamics of mythological narrativity and its logical exfoliation.
