Description:

In this book, Alec Basson examines the divine metaphors in a selection of biblical Hebrew psalms of Lamentation from a cognitive-anthropological perspective. The study signals a move beyond the more traditional approaches to the Psalms and argues that the textual information in these poems is more than literary information as such; it is also a cognitive representation of the psalmist's world. The divine portrayals arise from the supplicant's cognitive organisation and utilisation of cultural information, which include the everyday experiences. In situations of affliction, the poet employs various cognitive strategies such as cultural models, image-schemas, and conceptual metaphors as a means of portraying the deity. The exploration illustrates the link between the psalmist's cultural experience, a cognitive construal of reality, and the metaphorical representations. The utilisation of the different cognitive tools gives rise to new and recurring images of the deity and accounts for the multiple depictions of Yahweh. The investigation arrives at the conclusion that, to appreciate fully the divine metaphors used in the Psalms of Lamentation, one has to examine the cognitive world of the poet.

Book Description Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2006. Brosch. XII, 278 S. Neubuch / New Copy // Alec Basson untersucht aus einer kognitiv-anthropologischen Perspektive Metaphern des Göttlichen anhand einer Auswahl von Klagepsalmen aus dem Alten Testament. Er argumeniert, daß die gegebene Textinformation mehr als nur eine rein literarische ist. Sie ist auch eine kognitive Darstellung der Welt des Psalmendichters. In Notsituationen verwendet der Dichter verschiedene kognitive Strategien wie kulturelle Modelle, Bildschemata und begriffliche Metaphern als ein Mittel, um die Gottheit darzustellen. Die Untersuchung zeigt die Verbindung zwischen der kulturellen Erfahrung des Psalmendichters, seinem kognitiven Konstrukt der Realität und der metaphorischen Darstellung. Um die göttlichen Metaphern, die in den Klagepsalmen vorkommen, gerecht zu werden, muß die kognitive Welt des Psalmendichters mitberücksichtigt werden.
