Gadamer and Ricoeur: Critical Horizons for Contemporary Hermeneutics (Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy)


Hans-Georg Gadamer and Paul Ricoeur have been of crucial hermeneutical philosophers of the 20th century. Gadamer single-handedly revived hermeneutics as a philosophical box together with his many essays and his masterpiece, fact and procedure. Ricoeur famously mediated the Gadamer-Habermas debate and complex his personal hermeneutical philosophy via a few books addressing social thought, faith, psychoanalysis and political philosophy.

This publication brings Gadamer and Ricoeur right into a hermeneutical dialog with one another via a few of their most crucial commentators. Twelve prime students convey modern checks of the background and promise of hermeneutical philosophy, supplying targeted dialogue at the paintings of those key hermeneutical thinkers. The booklet exhibits how the horizons in their suggestion right now aid and query one another and the way, in lots of methods, the paintings of those pioneering philosophers defines the problems and agendas for the hot century.
