HON 409 - Hermes Unbound: Divining Hermeneutics


Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program, or consent of instructor. Reflections on Hermes, the messenger of the Greek gods, gave rise to hermeneutike, the art of interpretation. This art of interpretation, hermeneutics, is the discipline arising from reflection on the problems involved in the transmission of meaning from text or symbol to reader or hearer. This course will survey reflections on these problems from ancient times to our own. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
