<b>Objectivism and relativism : historical Jesus studies with regard to philosophy of science</b> <br>While many recent historical Jesus studies have been done from theological and methodological viewpoints, this article focuses on the perspective of the philosophy of science. It aims to view some contemporary historical Jesus studies with regard to the philosophy of science from the angle of philosophical hermeneutics inaugurated by Heidegger's reflection on fundamental ontology. The article criticises both an objectivistic view about knowledge that data can be known in ways that correspond to actual objective existence and a relativistic mentality that undermines the value of truth-seeking.
