Instead, Pokorný’s principal intention is to define the philosophical and theological premises of individual projects of understanding — their interrelations, meaning, and function in interpretation, especially that of ancient texts such as the Bible.Pokorný’s work here functions admirably both as a text for students and as a monograph that suggests new paths in hermeneutical discussion.
