Description

This work examines the evolution of Scottish hermeneutical method from John Knox to the early 20th century, showing how the method was transformed from a Primitivism (a term borrowed from the history of ideas) to "historical consciousness" as represented by the higher critical method. This work examines the whole "big picture" of transformation based on the "paradigm shift" or presuppositions from the primitivism of John Knox and others to the Enlightenment-based historical-critical method.
