Philosophy of science and Introduction to the Old Testament
The study of the Old Testament has always taken place in a context of theological and philosophical presuppositions about knowledge, truth, history, religion, etc. This article investigates the relationship between the Introduction to the Old Testament's theoretical base and modern trends in the philosophy of science. In the end the conclusion is reached that the Introduction to the Old Testament has not kept track of current questions in the philosophy of science and this emphasises the need to bring the study of the Old Testament up to date with the modern view of science as a socially and historically determined human activity.
