- Foundationalism is an idea found not only in metaphysics and epistemology but also in diverse areas such as ethics, social science, natural science, culture, and so on. I define foundationalism as the idea that there is some foundation which is the ultimate source of justification for our world, knowledge, rationality, culture, goodness and so on. In the theory of interpretation as well, to search for such a foundation of the meaning of a text is the main tradition. We have seen the modem root of foundationalism of interpretation in Schleiermacher. Before him, however, the philological and biblical hermeneutics tried to find the foundation which determined the meaning of a text. The foundationalism of interpretation is currently developed in two directions. One is Intentionalism, the other is Formalism.
