Biblical Semantic Logic: A Preliminary Analysis


Sheffield Academic Press 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Biblical Semantic Logic seeks to show that the study of Biblical and ancient Near Eastern languages and literatures can be established on a logical basis. In the prologue, Gibson reviews some of the scholarly treatment of the issue. He addresses the topics of originality and infinity and also suggests that deep areas of literary creativity resemble cosmology and pure mathematics. Gibson then demonstrates how the central areas of Biblical usage (names, predicates expressions of quantity, idioms) can be mapped employing some contemporary philosophy, logic and linguistics. There is criticism of some previous scholarly interpretations, especially where these have led to the underestimation of the conceptual and logical sensitivity of Biblical narrative.
