"Gott ist Feuer" und "Gott ist eifervoll" : Spinozas Sola Scriptura

  • The conference paper interprets Spinoza's concept of “sola scriptura” as a reductio ad absurdum of historicalcritical approaches to text interpretation. It shows that despite Spinoza's emphasis on the revelatory function of scripture and despite his claim that there is only one method of reading it, he intently and distinctly undermines this very hermeneutics as unreliable and incompatible with both reason and truth. The text follows the central intuition that for Spinoza, this insuffiency of hermeneutics accounts for its political potential, as a means of uncoupling politics and theology.
