- n. One who studies hermeneutics
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The silliest example I've seen of this is when an academic who I guess likes to think of himself as the hardest of the hardcore and the purest of the pure dismissed Ludwig Lachmann as a "former Austrian and neo-historicist-hermeneutician-nihilist."
It is something that may help the hermeneutician not to fall prey to the tendency to filter another's speech or writing through one's own cultural, theological, or philosophical frame of mind.
