This book presents a philosophical understanding of the conditions that must be satisfied by the interpretation of texts which are regarded as revealed by religious communities. It has chapters on revelation, interpretation, various kinds of hermeneutical views (authorial, audiencial, literary, sociological, and theological), definitive interpretations, and the relativity of interpretations.

Delfino devoted to this book. This book provides an answer to why metaphysics always recovers from the many attacks to which it has been subjected throughout its history by offering the first systematic analysis of the nature of the discipline. This is done by examining its object, method, aim, and the kind of propositions of which it is composed. Apart from a new conception of metaphysics and an explanation of the resilience of the discipline, the book presents an understanding of the nature and ontological status of categories, an analysis of the nature of reductionism and its role in philosophy, and a discussion and criticism of the main views concerning the nature of metaphysics developed in the history of philosophy.

6. A Theory of Textuality: The Logic and Epistemology. Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 1995, 327 pp. Session of Canadian Society for Hermeneutics devoted to this book. This book presents the logical and epistemological dimensions of a theory of textuality which takes into account the relevant views of both analytic and Continental thinkers and also of some major historical figures. It begins with a logical analysis of the notion of text resulting from a definition that serves as the basis for the distinctions subsequently drawn between texts on the one hand and language, artifacts, art objects, and works on the other; and for the classification of texts according to modality and function. The second part of the book uses the conclusions of the first part to solve the various epistemological issues which have been raised about texts by philosophers of language, semioticians, hermeneuticists, literary critics, semanticists, aestheticians, and historiographers.
