This chapter briefly reflects on the historical situation as heirs to ancient hermeneutics and points to some avenues of research leading on from this investigation. It also tries to address what has been achieved in the course of the investigation of Mishnaic hermeneutics and the price paid for achieving it in this manner. The chapter ends by evaluating the project to which the book aims to contribute and other considerations for rabbinic Judaism and beyond.
