CARR NEWMAN & GADAMER

CARR NEWMAN & GADAMER: TOWARD A HERMENEUTICS OF RELIGIOUS KNOWLEDGE (AAR REFLECTION & THEORY IN THE STUDY OF RELIGION). This volume is a work of comparison, criticism & construction. The author examines the religious epistemology of John Henry Newman along side the philosophical hermeneutics of Hans-Gerog Dadamer. Both writers cover a surprising amount of common ground; they make similar claims; and they fall into similar errors. A critical examination of four of Newman's leading ideas - first principles, antecedent probability, doctrinal development, and the illative sense - are compared with such Gadamerian themes as self-understanding, Bildung projection, tradition & the fusion of horizons. the author concludes with a constructive proposal that applies a Newman-Gadamer synthesis to questions about a knowledge of God About the Author: Thomas Carr is a former Professor of Religious Studies at Mount Union College
