Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The objective of this dissertation is to study the singularity of the Hebrew rootידע (know), in the book of Qoheleth, placing it in its biblical sapiential field and the wider scope of the entire Old Testament. This dissertation consists of tree chapters: in the first, we will present the root ידע in the literary context of the Old Testament and the singularity of the book of Qoheleth. In the second chapter, we will study the semantic dynamism of the root ידע , in the book of Qoheleth. In the third chapter, we will try to propose some lines of singularity of this root in the cognitive process of Qoheleth identifying the singularity traits of the root יד ע , in the literary context of the Old Testament.
