Truth and Method by Hans-Georg GadamerTruth and Method by Hans-Georg Gadamer, Joel C. Weinsheimer (Editor), Donald G. Marshall (Editor). 

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....
