This research will examine the most basic problems in building a transcendent legal epistemology in the form of a pyramid level to maintain the hierarchical vision of science as an intellectual tradition in order to maintain the continuity of science in responding to the needs of society, even though it experiences discontinuous turmoil. As the pyramid building illustrates, the strength of the transcendent law paradigm must be at its foundation and solid foundation. The power of the transcendent legal paradigm is taken from the pieces of knowledge that have existed and scattered in scattered pieces of history which are then put together and reconfigured in the order of ontology, epistemology and axiology. In fact, there is no single method used in science whose presence displaces and overrides other methods. In modern science itself, it has been recognized that there is a plurality of methodologies, especially among historians and philosophers of contemporary science. Even some of them have progressively broadened their views so that they openly accept the presence of the Bible as one of a plurality of methodologies. Through this pilot research, it is hoped that there will be a picture that can encourage the importance of tracing traces of legal transcendence to lay the foundation of the transcendental legal paradigm pyramid.
