Certainly one of the key German philosophers of the twentieth century, Hans-Georg Gadamer also influenced the study of literature, art, music, sacred and legal texts, and medicine. Indeed, while much attention has been focused on Gadamers writingsMoreCertainly one of the key German philosophers of the twentieth century, Hans-Georg Gadamer also influenced the study of literature, art, music, sacred and legal texts, and medicine.

Indeed, while much attention has been focused on Gadamers writings about ancient Greek and modern German philosophy, the relevance of his work for other disciplines is only now beginning to be properly considered and understood. In an effort to address this slant, this volume brings together many prominent scholars to assess, re-evaluate, and question Hans-Georg Gadamers works, as well as his place in intellectual history. The book includes a recent essay by Gadamer on the task of hermeneutics, as well as essays by distinguished contributors including Jurgen Habermas, Richard Rorty, Gerald Bruns, Georgia Warnke, and many others.

The contributors situate Gadamers views in surprising ways and show that his writings speak to a range of contemporary debates from constitutional questions to issues of modern art. A controversial final section attempts to uncover and clarify Gadamers history in relation to National Socialism. More an investigation and questioning than a celebration of this venerable and profoundly influential philosopher, this collection will become a catalyst for any future rethinking of philosophical hermeneutics, as well as a significant starting place for rereading and reviewing Hans-Georg Gadamer.
