Summary/Abstract: There are different venues to knowledge and their importance in the process depends very much on the worldview on holds on to. I have pointed out some ways in which both modernism and postmodernism influences someone’s hermeneutics, with predilection for theological hermeneutics. Even though a lot could be said about the core ideas of the two worldviews mentioned above, I am more interested, in this article, in highlighting how these could help out the interpreter in the process of knowing. In the same way, any other view of world, in future, would help the interpreter in ways former worldviews did not.
