From the New Testament, Most traces Thomas´s many permutations: Gnostic saint, missionary to India, paragon of Christian orthodoxy, hero of skepticism, and example of doubt, blasphemy, and violence. Most shows how Thomas´s story, in its many guises, touches upon central questions of religion, philosophy, hermeneutics, and, not least, life.
After postmodern critique has deconstructed, decentered, and displaced order and identity on all levels, we are faced with the Humpty Dumpty question of how to put the pieces back together again. This book brings together the seldom associated discourses of hermeneutics, actor-network theory, and new media in order to formulate a theory of a global network society. Hermeneutics re-opens the question of unity in a fragmented world. Actor-network theory reinterprets the construction of meaning as networking. New media studies show how networking is done. Networks arise, are maintained, and are transformed by communicative actions that are governed by network norms that make up a social operating system. The social operating system offers an alternative to the imperatives of algorithmic logic, functionality, and systemic closure that dominate present day solutions to problems of over-complexity in all areas. The world of meaning constructed by the social operating system is a mixed reality in which filters and layers replace the physical restraints of space and time as parameters of knowing and acting. Society and nature, humans and non-humans come together in a socio-sphere consisting of hybrid, heterogeneous actor-networks. This book proposes reinterpreting hermeneutics as networking and networking as guided by a social operating system whose norms are based on new media. There emerges a theory for a global network society described by different concepts than those typical of Western modernity.
This book shows how a masterpiece of experimental cinema can be interpreted through hermeneutics of the film world. As an application of Ricoeurian methodology to a non-narrative film, the book calls into question the fundamental concept of the film world. Firmly rooted within the context of experimental cinema, Stan Brakhage´s Dog Star Man was not created on the basis of a narrative structure and representation of characters, places and events, but on very different presuppositions. The techniques with which Brakhage worked on celluloid and used frames as canvases, as well as his choice to make the film without dialogue and sound, exhort the interpreter to directly question the philosophical language of moving images.
When exactly did the Parting of the Ways between Jews and Christians take place? Was it already Jesus who separated himself and his followers from the Jews ? Or did Paul with his mission of pagans make the decisive step? Or do we have to wait longer until after 70 CE, when the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed? In his new book, which goes back to the 2013 Deichmann lectures at Ben Gurion University, Beersheva, Tobias Nicklas shows that the above question is formulated inadequately. Instead, one has to distinguish between the situations of different groups (and even individuals) in different historical circumstances. To show this, Nicklas discusses images of Jews in early Christian writings, concepts of Israel´s God and his Covenant with Israel, Christological and Ecclesiological hermeneutics of the Scriptures, and matters of Halakha for believers in Christ.
