Fundamental to the study of hermeneutics, as to any academic disciplines, is the question of epistemology. What are the grounds of knowledge ? How does one determine the limits and validity of knowledge? It is not our purpose to discuss the subject in any detail but simply to note basic assumptions that affect our approach to hermeneutics. Two ways of knowing are so much a part of our Western ways of thinking that they are received as axiomatic viz. sensory experience and reason. Any theology that limits itself only to these two ways of knowing is locked into the perennial dichotomy between faith and reason to which the so-called New Hermeneutic1 seeks to speak, however, without much success for reasons to be discussed later.
