- The students should receive a historical and systematic insight into the interpretive culture of the Koran.

- They should be familiar with different approaches, interpretive traditions and methods.

- They should be able to use these different approaches to create an interpretative scope for dealing with current challenges of the Muslim community in general, and in particular in Europe

As a science dealing with the exegesis and interpretation of the Koran, the discipline "Tafsīr" is the focus of every Islamic-theological or religious-educational activity. After a brief explanation of the terms tafsīr, ta'wil and hermeneutics, the seminar will present an overview of the different approaches of the Koranic exegesis as well as their methodological considerations, based on the historical genesis, development and differentiation processes of these conceptual fields.

The  differences between these different approaches are illustrated by application examples of these interpretation methods to selected Koran passages..Finally, the most important foundations of Koranexeese (usul at-Tafsir) devoleped by scholars like al-Ġazzālī, Ibn Rušd, and Ibn Taimīya will be compared and discussed  

Lecture, discussion, text work and analysis on selected Koranic passages
