Gadamer and Fields

I'm not quite done with my 40-page paper on phenomenological hermeneutics (it's due at midnight, EST), thus the blogging silence. However, I was just looking at the bibliography for the paper so far, and I instinctively started singing the old Sesame Street song, "One of these things is not like the other." Let's see if you can spot the one that doesn't seem to belong:

Ummm... probably the phenomenological work that I read as a 20 year old youth pastor in North Carolina. Peace.

Classic. Funny thing is, stuff by Fields will probably outlast everything else on the planet, because of the sheer ridiculous abundance of it. Like cockroaches. Future extra-terrestrial civilizations will build shrines to the 5 you-know-whats.

It's gotta be the one with "Consensus" in the title. Most of the rest deal with hermeneutics, and there's never a consensus there. Nor in film criticism, for that matter.

Best wishes and God bless as you finish that paper!

Your first cite of Gadamer seems a bit antiquated and thus suspect as to applicability.]8~)

As a person who really has no idea what phenomonology is (or even how to spell it) - but is seeing the word frequently -

I'd love to see a little post giving a bit of of a description of phe~ hermeneutics.

I first saw this about a year ago and still have no idea what it is talking about.

Perhaps when th epaper is finished you could give us a bit of a synopsis? Or you can go for the world record longest post and post the whole dang thing!! I would appreciate the former though, as I likely wouldn't understand the whole paper.

Funny thing about Doug (I wrote an article first entitled I hate Doug Fields - premise was catchy but got a lot of heat was to not copy Doug but love Doug and the God Doug loves)

Though Len Evans did put me up to asking Tony "Isn't postmodernism just a fad?" You should of seen the look? Of course I love ya Tony; way smarter than me. Though I was Nameless Pastor for sometime. I look more into reading some of the articulations of you Tony. Good stuff.

Sad thing now is not only postmodernism; but also people seeing the emerging church as a trend? (when will people learn?)

I'm going to go out on a limb here,
(not really)
and guess:

Fields, Doug, and Eddie James. Videos That Teach: Teachable Movie Moments from 75 Modern Film Classics. Grand Rapids, MI: Youth Specialties/Zondervan, 1999.

Best of luck on the paper.
