Description

Hans-Georg Gadamer is best known in the English-speaking world for his major work on philosophical hermeneutics, "Truth and Method" , and his writings on Plato. Brice Wachterhauser argues that only by viewing Gadamer's contribution to philosophy as an integrated whole, and by reading Gadamer's hermeneutical studies in light of his Plato studies, are we able to avoid certain key misunderstandings of Gadamer, as well as to comprehend more clearly the radical implications of Gadamer's thought.

About Author

Hans Georg-Gadamer is best known in the English-speaking world for his major work on philosophical hermeneutics, Truth and Method; he has also written extensively on the subject of Plato. Most commentators on Gadamer's work therefore view Gadamer either as a historian of philosophy or as a philosopher in his own right, critically engaged in the philosophical issues of our time.
