Hoe Ons Sin Maak van die Opvoedingswerklikheid


  • J. L. van der Walt


Hermeneutics is the art, skill or method applied by scientists for understanding and interpreting reality or aspects of reality, including education. Important though this skill or method in itself might be, it cannot be regarded as belonging to the essence of being human as, for instance, Gadamer seemed to think. It is simply a scientific method by means of which, among others, educationalists strive to make sense of what their senses reveal to them about created reality. In the process of understanding and interpreting God’s will for reality, they naturally also make sense of their own existence. They apply insights, for instance in the lawful structure of creation, to their task of making a home for themselves in creation. Application of the hermeneutic method requires mastery of a number of theoretical insights and techniques, including the schemata associated with the hermeneutic circle or spiral.
