The Ethical Symbol: Symbolic Structure in Ethics, Language, and Revelation

 
9783639169140: The Ethical Symbol: Symbolic Structure in Ethics, Language, and Revelation

If revelation is synonymous with ethical knowledge, then what of the the manner in which it is relayed? History proves repeatedly, in accounts of oppression and violence that authoritative claims on the meaning of revelation can be dangerously exclusive. To be truly ethical,the very language of ethics must undergo a conceptual shift, from ownership of knowledge to an admittedly partial participation in it. Such a shift, the author suggests, is achieved through symbolic awareness, wherein reconciliation between limited and ultimate knowledge is reached. In this work, the author underscores the parallels between symbol, philosophy of ethics, language, and revelation,and shows that the abandonment of previous models of ethical knowledge need not produce a crisis of meaning. Instead, she demonstrates the ethical structure that is at the very heart of revelation and language. Rooted in theology and philosophy, this book spans across topics such as inter-faith dialogue, biblical scholarship, hermeneutics and linguistics. But beyond these, it deals with education at large, as it suggests a methodology for ethical instruction, particularly that which uses the bible as its source.
