Intercultural hermeneutics as a method for the human sciences

Project: Research Project

Project Details


This project seeks to use the tools and resources obtained during the last years in two research areas of the principal researcher (intercultural dialogue and studies of the relations between science and religion) to explore the possibilities and formulate the theoretical and methodological principles of an intercultural hermeneutics appropriate for the study of systems and practices of traditional knowledge in Latin America. This is what we are looking for: (1) to point out the importance of the epistemic dimension of intercultural dialogue, which has tended to be suspended in recent bibliography; and (2) to introduce traditional knowledge as a field of study and discussion in the area of "Science and Religion", whose predominant emphasis has been the dialogue between natural sciences and Christianity in the North Atlantic world.
