GERICKE, Jaco W.. Philosophical criticism of the Hebrew Bible and the Analytic-Continental divide. Old testam. essays [online]. 2016, vol.29, n.1, pp.85-99. ISSN 2312-3621.

This article takes a closer look at how the so-called Analytic-Continental divide within meta-philosophy has manifested itself within various forms of "philosophical criticism " of the HB. It is argued that, based on data collected from recent related conferences, there is evidence of influence from both sides of the divide within both broad/narrow and explicit/implicit types of philosophical criticism. However, in contrast to tense relations elsewhere in generic philosophy, the interdisciplinary intersection of biblical scholarship, philosophy of religion and Jewish philosophy appears to display a general acceptance of methodological diversity.

Keywords : Hebrew Bible (hb); meta-philosophy; Analytic-Continental (A-C) divide; philosophical criticism (pc); philosophy of religion; Jewish philosophy.
