Chapter Summary

The hypothesis of the corporate personality has frequently been utilized not only by Wheeler Robinson but also by other scholars. This chapter first dicusses Wheeler Robinson and subsequently other scholars who have made use of the corporate personality. In different places Wheeler Robinson utilizes the corporate personality. The connections within which he refers to the corporate personality, are as follows, first in "Prophecy and Apocalyptic" related to the nature of prophecy; second, in "The Psalms" in connection with the collective or individualistic conception of the 'I' in the Psalms. In the discussion of the application of the corporate personality in Old Testament scholarship, a distinction is made between the different contexts, in which the hypothesis is applied. This offers the possibility of expressing systematically the manner in which the corporate personality is used in the extension of its own type of application of Wheeler Robinson.
