The Comparative Study of Qur’an Interpretation & Classic Hermeneutics
Tahereh Mohseni

In the world of Islam, the interpretation of holy Qur’an, science of jurisprudence, inference of lawful judgments and reference to Qur’an and Imams’ narrations for consolidation of literal beliefs and issues require the establishment and expurgation of Qur’an interpretation methods, text interpretation theory and dealing with the principles and criteria governing the texts perception which necessitate the need for an interpretation method and recognition of the principles that can assist us in better understanding of Qur’an verses and the interpreters’ quotes. On the other hand, the classic hermeneutics came into existence with the purpose to expurgate the principles and methods of text perception and paved the ground for vast intellectual developments. Existence of the similar concerns and approaches has entailed the utilization of each other’s common experiences by these two areas. The comparative studies will be the best solutions for accomplishment of such constructive interaction. In the current research we turned into the comparative interpretation of Qur’an and classic hermeneutics after explaining the hermeneutists’ view points and demonstrated that the elites of the two areas believe in the perceptibility and interpretability of the text and their objective is to reach the author’s purpose. They consider the meaning of the text an objective issue which is accessible by adapting an appropriate method and using public lingual rules and the interpreters’ hypothesis and their time interval from the age of descending (compilation) are some of the misunderstanding factors which can be overcome by applying proper methods and perceive the exact meaning of the text.
