The author demonstrates that, in spite of their great differences, these works show a fundamental analogy. Considered as canonical within their own religious context, each text possesses absolute authority in comparison with other authoritative texts from their respective religious traditions. This fundamental analogy allows one to describe the growth and history of these canons, step by step, as a process that takes place in analogous phases that are clearly distinguishable.
The author follows a strictly phenomenological method: he tries to understand the development of these canons in terms of a potential that lies within the phenomena themselves, i. In part I the author describes the development from the 'revelation' of the texts to a climax with respect to reflection on the canons.

This climax has been reached in all four cases. Part II investigates the crisis that these canons are currently undergoing as a consequence of the modern intellectual climate. The collected works of William Shakespeare , for instance, would be part of the canon of western literature, since his writing and writing style has had a significant impact on nearly all aspects of that genre.

The accepted body of work that comprises the canon of Western literature has evolved and changed over the years, however. For centuries it was populated primarily by white men, and therefore not as representative of Western culture as a whole. Over time, some works become less pertinent in the canon as they're replaced by more modern counterparts. For instance, the works of Shakespeare and Chaucer are still considered significant.
In religious terms, a canon is a standard of judgment or a text containing those views, such as the Bible or the Koran. Sometimes within religious traditions, as views evolve or change, some formerly canonical texts become "apocryphal," meaning outside the realm of what's considered representative. An example of an apocryphal text in Christianity would be the Gospel of Mary Magdelene, a highly controversial text not widely recognized in the Church, but believed to be the words of one of Jesus' closest companions.
People of color have become more prominent parts of the canon as a past emphasis on Eurocentrism has waned.
