Description de l'événement

Titre: What Can Biblical Greek Linguistics Learn from Philosophy and Hermeneutics? 

Conférencier: Stanley E. Porter, professeur et doyen du département de théologie au McMaster Divinity College

Conférence donnée en anglais

In this presentation I introduce some of the philosophical underpinnings of the various stages in the history of language study, with concentration upon the study of New Testament Greek. I trace the three major periods, from the Enlightenment to the contemporary period, showing the influence of philosophy and hermeneutics. I then explore some recent developments by selecting a couple of contemporary linguistic theories and examining some of their philosophical and hermeneutical presuppositions. I finally draw out some hermeneutical implications. One of the goals of the paper is to move away from any notion that language study, especially Greek language study, is a discipline free from the influence of its intellectual context and open possibilities for rethinking how we conceptualize language.
