This volume offers a systematic and detailed description of early
rabbinic hermeneutics as it can be reconstructed from the Mishnah
(third century c.e.). Samely clarifies the conditions of a modern
appreciation of rabbinic hermeneutics and provides a unified set of
concepts for its precise description, based on modern linguistics and
philosophy of language. Basic features of rabbinic hermeneutics and
its difference from modern historical reading are explained, and a
catalogue of recurrent techniques of interpretation is defined.
