In other words, Humans are the beginning and end of the annotative ring of life. The Hermeneutical circle comes from the Western Theological tradition, meaning it is history that has sculpted our society from the past to the present and aiming towards our future.

The three dynamics she talks about are “The hermeneutical circle of past and present experiences," “Crisis of tradition," and “The critical principle of feminist theology”.
