View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In Plurality and Ambiguity, David Tracy lays the philosophical groundwork for a practical application of hermeneutics, while constructing an innovative model of theological interpretation developed out of the notions of conversation and argument. He concludes with an appraisal of the religious significance of hope in an age of radically different voices and constantly shifting meanings.

From the Back Cover:

Hermeneutics, Religion, Hope: 'A sensitive, judicious, and humane book...about the interpretation of interpretation-as-conversation, the strenuous requirements and conditions for good conversation and why ongoing, open, engaged conversation is our best hope for honestly facing and interpreting the radical plurality and fearful ambiguity that is always already present.'
