Ricoeur took his point of departure in the phenomenological philosophy and, as Heidegger, developed it in a hermeneutic direction. Through language he anticipated the narrative approach, which was later formulated by Ricoeur, who saw narrative and time as mutually related. How an author spends his time writing and what he includes in his text all play key roles in interpretation. As Russel puts it by reading the Gospel, readers can discover the charactersists of Jesus and learn about his teachings that serve as an outstanding model for all Christians who seek spiritual growth.
The risks of hermeneutic research, including the risk of doing it badly, mean that rigour is as much a methodological consideration as for any other form of research.

Headmaster Gröber directs his attention to philosophy. In this paper we examine philosophical hermeneutics as an approach that is structured around the particular questions and purpose of a specific research project and we provide an example to illustrate what hermeneutics can reveal. These methodological developments involve interpretation right from the beginning and build on Heidegger's notion of appearing and the detective work required to facilitate the interpretation of meaning.
