The fight against revelation in semantical studies

The fight against revelation in semantical studies HERMAN TONNESSEN Oslo THE FIGHT AGAINST REVELATION IN SEMANTICAL STUDIES It is a well known phrase to say that the difference between religion and belief on the one hand and knowledge and science on the other, may be described as follows: the former depends on revelation, as we say in Dutch and Norwegian on "openbaring", the latter not.

Abstract

HERMAN TONNESSEN Oslo THE FIGHT AGAINST REVELATION IN SEMANTICAL STUDIES It is a well known phrase to say that the difference between religion and belief on the one hand and knowledge and science on the other, may be described as follows: the former depends on revelation, as we say in Dutch and Norwegian on "openbaring", the latter not. As a matter of fact, however, I very often have the impression of struggling revelation, even in semantical and sociological studies. I suddenly find myself on the point of presenting something as a result of my brain- work without being able to give a somewhat detailed description of my assumptions and the auxiliary hypothesis which reasonably must have led me from the observations of any kind to this "result". In the following I will mainly deal with certain means of resistance against this temptation of revelation. This is to say that I will try to give a hint of a kind of investigations which will be involved in all philosophical or logical analysis and semantical or signific studies of our Oslo-group, and which we at the time regard as being the most important part of such studies.
