PIETERSE, H.J.C.. The necessity of taking into account metatheoretical aspects pertaining to a hermeneutical approach to Practical Theology. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.4, pp.719-738. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article is part of the project "Metatheoretical assumptions in Practical Theology". Within the theological framework of the project, namely that we view reality as a realm where God is working, and that we interpret praxis from this point of departure, this article discusses our approach to the interpretation of praxis which we see as a hermeneutical moment. Currently there are, among others, empirical, hermeneutical, liberation-theological and narrative approaches to Practical Theology. The author has chosen to discuss the hermeneutical approach to the study of the discipline from a reformed theological perspective. The philosophical-hermeneutical theories and the hermeneutical approach to Practical Theology by Browning, Dingemans, Heitink and Osmer are discussed. From a reformational perspective the conclusion is that we can critically link up with Osmer's approach.
