and Method by
Hans-Georg Gadamer, Joel C. Weinsheimer (Editor), Donald G.
A newly revised edition of the classic work
of philosophy and criticism. Incorporates numerous corrections.
“No one interested in hermeneutics and historical
understanding can justify neglecting Wahrheit und Methode.
Gadamer not only reinterprets the history of modern
hermeneutics, but he offers his own phenomenology of
understanding.... His is our century’s most creative and
ambitious attempt to exorcise the demon of historicism.”—Journal
of the American Academy of Religion
“The most ambitious theoretical justification of knowledge in
the human sciences to appear in recent years. The book’s
impact as a thoroughgoing discussion of modern historicism has
already been felt in the disciplines of aesthetics, law,
theology, and philosophy.”—Choice
“The single most important study of the origin, development,
and nature of the concept and meaning of ‘hermeneutical
consciousness’ extant.”—Review of Metaphysics..
