Job 28: Cognition in Context
E. J. Van Wolde
BRILL, Jan 1, 2003 - Religion - 375 pages
This volume deals with the song of wisdom in Job 28 as it is analysed by scholars in biblical exegesis, Hebrew lexicography and cognitive linguistics. A colloquium (organised by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam 2002) of experts in these three disciplines showed that exploring the common ground is worthwhile. The proceedings of this conference presented here, under the title 'Job 28. Cognition in Context' not only indicate the possibilities of Hebrew semantics and cognitive approaches to the Hebrew Bible but rather severely expose the unsatisfactory simplicity with which the bifurcation of so-called "historical" and "literary" approaches to or readings of the biblical text is still regarded in the exegetical disciplines.
