Hans-Georg Gadamer is one of the leading exponents of hermeneutics, with a formidable influence on thinking in the humanities. The two main foci of his work have been Greek philosophy, especially Plato, and hermeneutics, but his influences range through many sources, from Kant to Heidegger.

This volume contains Gadamer's intellectual autobiography, essays by leading philosophers, Gadamer's replies to each essay, and a bibliography of Gadamer's writings.

Review:

This latest in a series on living philosophers in which one philosopher's lifetime work is analyzed, critiqued, and expounded by numerous contemporaries, allowing the philosopher to respond to each, is particularly appropriate in the case of Hans-Georg Gadamer. His influential Truth and Method propounded the idea of a fusion of horizons in which we collectively come to the truth through the interaction of conversation. This book is the perfect way, then, to a true interpretation of the champion of philosophical hermeneutics, a challenge to deconstructionism.
