There is a reason Hans Gadamer lived to be 102 years of age. God knew we needed him. Gadamer's history-making consummate work was "Truth and Method", published in 1960 when Gadamer was 60 years old. This collection of essays is in response to that consummate position. It is a refinement of the previously refined conclusions. Therefore, to be an effective book, you would need to have an all-inclusive understanding of Gadamer ahead of time. If not from "truth and method", then from some other source. These essays cover a 12 year period of writing from 1960 - 1972. He offers true new clarifications that are powerful. After completing this work I felt I had the best representation of a thinker that I could ever have imagined.

He articulates the "aesthetic-resonance-chamber" of the unconscious; and the fusion of horizons "triad" of methodology as tradition, reflection, and linguistic idealism. He gives a quick synopsis of hermeneutics as it stands today after emerging from :Hegel to Bultmann to Heidegger to himself. He articulates the triad of forming the relatedness of the language-model as the triad of : "nature of things" - "language of things" - "rhythm of things". And he discusses the mediation of "buoyancy" as "inner dialogue of the soul". Plugging these clarifications into your overall understanding of Gadamer is a significant gain for the reader. I found Gadamer to be very accessible in his writing; deep meaning, easily grasped. Gadamer "is" post-modern hermeneutics - period. So don't ignore him in your theological and philosophical studies. You will enjoy these "bites" (average of 20 pages each) of truth. A welcome scholarly work; "5" big stars.
