In view of this perceived 1 2 Bruns 1992. Bruns 1992. 3 He is, therefore, generous in his acknowledgement of our debt to the ancients and he devotes the opening chapter of his Hermeneutics to an analysis of the Greek contribution. 4 Hermeneia, or interpretation, he points out, was discussed in several noteworthy accounts by the Ancient Greeks, from Xenophon, Plutarch, Euripides, Epicurus, Lucretius, and Longinus, to Plato and Aristotle. 5 Palmer explains that: ‘the Greek word hermeios referred to the priest at the Delphic oracle.
The problem that this fissure in the importance of the history of hermeneutics leaves is that, on the one hand, hermeneutics can be (wrongly) regarded as a principally modern ‘invention’ when its deeper past is denied. Contemporary hermeneuticists are then left with a depleted history of their subject and often a deeply mistaken view about the claims to novelty of recent developments. On the other hand, when the history of hermeneutics is recorded, it is often not analysed in any philosophical detail, and moreover, it is rarely placed in relation to later developments.
Copeland for instance argues that hermeneutics is indebted to the development of the Ancient Greek and Roman schools of rhetoric and grammar. She believes that grammar has a more significant role in the early formation of hermeneutics than rhetoric and thereby acknowledges, like Palmer, the debt to Ancient Greece, for it is only in Greece that the tradition of grammar is vaunted and broad. She also goes on to assess how Greek ideas about interpretation were carried forward through later humanist translation skills.
