Fabricating Facts: How Exegesis Presupposes Eisegesis

William J. Zanardi

Abstract


This essay is a rudimentary effort at the functional specialization of dialectic. Following Lonergans maxim in Insight to develop positions and to reverse counterpositions, it takes a relatively simple puzzle about eisegesis and criticises some basic confusions about what goes into the reading of texts. In the process two counterpositions on the meaning of text are criticised and an alternative to both defended.
