Biblical Semantic Logic: A Preliminary Analysis

A Gibson

$82.50

Paperback
Biblical semantic logic, which first appeared in 1981, seeks to show that the study of biblical and ancient Near Eastern languages and literatures can be established on a logical basis.;In a new prologue for this edition, Gibson reviews some of the scholarly treatment of the topic since the appearance of the first edition. He addresses the topics of originality and infinity and also suggests that deep areas of literary creativity resemble cosmology and pure mathematics.;Gibson then proceeds to demonstrate how the central areas of biblical usage (names, predicates expressions of quantity, idioms) can be mapped employing some contemporary philosophy, logic and linguistics. There is criticism of some previous scholarly interpretations, especially where these have led to the under-estimation of the conceptual and logical sensitivity of biblical narrative.
