The modern Biblical hermeneutics did not appreciate
sufficiently the meaning of the canon for
the interpretation of the texts within its limits.
There were two dominant tendencies: one pointing
toward to reconstruct oral and written traditions
in their most primitive form and one extending
the range of the fonts beyond the limits fixed by
the canon. The postmodern critique has demonstrated
that the supposed neutrality of these two
kinds of approach is really only in appearance.
Every text should be interpreted in the network
of relationships with the group of other texts
which is defined by the reader. The impossibility
to ignore this perspective means that each interpretation
involves the existence of a canon.
