The Paradigm of Christ
The Contents

Copyright 1982 Masahito Koishikawa

        This web site, the Paradigm of Christ, was created for those seeking the truth of humanity. The Paradigm of Christ is a phenomenological model being designed to illuminate the semiotic system of the Gospel and is a hermeneutic explanation developed through this model. Although the Paradigm of Christ evolved according to the symbolic system of the myth of Jesus Christ, the methods of reorganizing the metaphors are based on those of  metaphysics, phenomenology, and depth-psychology. From Christians to skeptics, anyone who seriously asking the questions of personality integration may participate in this metaphysical solution of the Christian Revelation.   This work deconstructs the Gospel while simultaneously reorganizing and applying it to the integration of human spirit. It is a reorganization into a metaphorical system through which we perceive the structure of being. Although the author takes a theistic standpoint, this work retains a genuinely semiotic, hermeneutic, and metaphysical study of the Gospel. The word Paradigm was taken from Plato's Paradigma (the exemplar of the form of the Good).
