Title: Rabbinic Interpretation of Scripture in the Mishnah
Written By: Alexander Samely
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0198270313.html
Description:

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.
