The ‘postmodern’ stamp in the hermeneutics of the New Testament
It is often said that we are presently in a ‘postmodern’ age. A variety of definitions and opinions are given on what ‘postmodernism’ should be. Writers and interprete rs increasingly call themselves ‘postmodern’. This study focuses on reader-response criticism and the political reading o f texts as two approaches which make themselves known as ‘postmodern’. In the light of the insights of Jacques Derrida the essence of postmodernism is put into words and the claims of our being ‘postmodern’ are weighed up.
