i've noticed the term "post-modern" slipping into the rhetoric these days.
what should we understand by "modern" then? would that be the framework
pioneered by the 19th germans, and in criticism associated with
Wellhausen? if so, the post-modern is not that "post". and then what do
you do with dissenters like Kaufmann and the Jerusalem School? is that
pre-modern or anti-modern?
any thoughts on the correct use of modern? and pre- vs post-?
