Editorial Reviews

Review

"This twelve-essay collection should introduce Gadamer to new readers while engaging those familiar with his work." Journal of the History of Philosophy

"...brings together many themes and conveys difficult thinking with real clarity." Philosophy in Review

"...overall, this collection is nicely judged and well-organized, and the inclusion of a very thorough bibliography at the end makes it all the more valuable..." American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly

Book Description

Hans-Georg Gadamer (b. 1900) is widely recognized as the leading exponent of philosophical hermeneutics. The essays in this collection examine Gadamer's biography, the core of hermeneutical theory, and the significance of his work for ethics, aesthetics, the social sciences, and theology; his appropriation of Hegel, Heidegger, and the Greeks; and his relation to modernity, critical theory, and post-structuralism.New readers will find this the most convenient and accessible guide to Gadamer currently available. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Gadamer.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Professor Dostal has assembled a useful collection of essays for this volume. The best contributions are by Jean Grondin (shrewd and astute, as always) and Fred Lawrence and someone named Gunter Figal.
Unfortunately, Richard J. Bernstein's piece on Gadamer/Habermas/Derrida is a bit thin, while J.M. Baker Jr.'s essay on lyric poetry seems endless.
Professor Dostal's essay on Gadamer and Heidegger (always a thorny subject) is especially good.
Recommended.

Format: Paperback
If you want a text that unpacks the main points of "Gadamer's Truth and Method", then, this is the text for you. The essays are clear and consise without sacrificing the complexity of Gadamer's argumentation.
