Chapter 28. Guerilla Hermeneutics – Becoming a respirateur

“I like living, breathing, better than working. I don’t think that the work I’ve done can have any social importance whatsoever in the future.

Chapter 2. Keeping in Breath – Schleiermacher and OOO

There are many ways to encounter doing hermeneutics. What is the praxeology of dark hermeneutics? What do you do? Do you follow a dark circle to the core of the text, the meaning, truth? Or do you try to melt down your own horizon to the one the text is offering?  Remember: inhale, hold, exhale […]
