Truth and method by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

299 editions published between 1955 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 4,604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hans-Georg Gadamer (1900-2002) was Professor of Philosophy at the Universities of Leipzig and Heidelberg. One of the foremost philosophers of the last century, he developed a groundbreaking philosophy of hermeneutics." "Truth and Method is Gadamer's most influential work, his magnum opus. Gadamer attacks the objectivity of Enlightenment reason and suggests that we need to see prejudices as present in all understanding. It is the work that defines the contemporary hermeneutic project of theoretical interpretation and is undoubtedly one of the most important texts in twentieth century philosophy."--Jacket
Hermeneutics, religion, and ethics by Hans-Georg Gadamer( )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 2,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years shortly before and after the publication of his classic Truth and Method (1960), the eminent German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer returned often to questions surrounding religion and ethics. In this selection of writings from Gesammelte Werke that are here translated into English for the first time, Gadamer probes deeply into the hermeneutic significance of these subjects."--Jacket
Gadamer on Celan : "Who am I and who are you?" and other essays by Hans Georg Gadamer( )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gadamer on Celan makes all of Hans-Georg Cadamer's published writings on Paul Celan's poetry available in English for the first time. Gadamer's commentaries on Celan's work are explicitly meant for a general audience, and they are further testimony to Celan's growing importance in world literature since the Second World War. Celan's poetry has attracted the attention of many well-known figures, including Maurice Blanchot, Jacques Derrida, Edmond Jabes, Otto Poggeler, and George Steiner. As Steiner has said, "It will take a long time for our sensibilities to apprehend poetry of these dimensions and this radicality." Gadamer's commentaries will help readers to listen to Celan's poetry, and to become acquainted with his only book-length commentary on a poet, using the best example of Gadamer's thinking on the relationship of philosophy and poetry
Literature and philosophy in dialogue : essays in German literary theory by Hans-Georg Gadamer( )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans-Georg Gadamer, the major proponent of philosophical hermeneutics, reveals himself here as a highly sensitive reader and critic of the German literary tradition. This is not the work of a specialist as narrowly defined in the typical literary study. Although he is a master of the techniques of criticism, Gadamer always sees the study of literature as a fundamentally human activity where human beings, generation after generation, pose their questions to an encroaching darkness that threatens to rob them of their confidence in the meaning of life and death. Never pedantic or antiquarian, these studies show such literary giants of the German past as Goethe and Holderlin as our contemporaries. Gadamer demonstrates his ability to achieve the creative interplay of literature and philosophy which, in isolation, easily degenerate into sterile academic games. Typical of this dialogue are essays on Rainer Maria Rilke, including an examination of a problem of punctuation in one of his poems. What would be, in less capable hands, one more solution to a literary problem, turns out to be one of Gadamer's creative approaches to the mystery of man's relation to time and death
The beginning of knowledge by Hans-Georg Gadamer( )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Beginning of Knowledge is a companion volume to the author's The Beginning of Philosophy. Together, these two works represent Gadamer's only two extended studies on the pre-Socratics. Gadamer is interested not so much in the origins of philosophy as in the origins of knowledge in general - everything , that is, that we cal "science". Beginning with a hermeneutical and philological investigation of the Heraclitus fragments, Gadamer then moves on to a discussion of the Greek atomists and the Presocratic cosmologists. Gadamer concludes by elaborating on the profound debt the modern scientific thought owes to the Greek scientific tradition
The idea of the good in Platonic-Aristotelian philosophy by HANS-GEORG GADAMER( Book )

32 editions published between 1978 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophical hermeneutics by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

30 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in German during the last 15 years, the 13 essays in this volume provide readers with valuable knowledge of the much discussed theme of hermeneutics today. Gadamer was an early student of Martin Heidegger and has been a lifelong friend and interpreter. These essays are an outgrowth of Gadamer's Truth and Method. They can be understood, however, independently of it. Gadamer's standpoint is a blend of Hegel's and Heidegger's, with his own independent development in part. The book contains a long and highly competent introduction by the editor, David E. Linge, who has translated most of the essays. - Choice, on back cover
The beginning of philosophy by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

28 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gadamer shows us how some of the earliest philosophical concepts such as truth, equality, nature, spirit and being came to be and how our understanding of them today is deeply indebted to Presocratic thinkers
Reason in the age of science by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

33 editions published between 1979 and 1998 in English and German and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this book deal broadly with the question of what form reasoning about life and society can take in a culture permeated by scientific and technical modes of thought. They attempt to identify certain very basic types of questions that seem to escape scientific resolution and call for, in Gadamer's view, philosophical reflection of a hermeneutic sort.In effect, Gadamer argues for the continued practical relevance of Socratic-Platonic modes of thought in respect to contemporary issues. As part of this argument, he advances his own views on the interplay of science, technology, and social policy.These essays, which are not available in any existing translation or collection of Gadamer's work, are remarkably up-to-date with respect to the present state of his thinking, and they address issues that are particularly critical to social theory and philosophy.Perhaps more than anyone else, Hans-Georg Gadamer, who is Professor Emeritus at the University of Heidelberg and Distinguished Visiting Professor at Boston College, is the doyen of German Philosophy." --Publisher's website
Hegel's dialectic : five hermeneutical studies by Hans Georg Gadamer( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 1982 in English and German and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the development of the notion of the dialectic from the classical Greek thinkers to the modern thinkers, Gadamer demonstrates that Hegel 'worked out his own dialectical method by extending the dialectic of the Ancients.' Excellently translated, this book is a valuable if demanding addition to Gadamer's philosophical work now available in English. These five essays on Hegel give the English-speaking reader a long-awaited opportunity to read the work of one of Germany's most distinguished philosophers, Hans-Georg Gadamer. Gadamer's unique hermeneutic method will have a lasting effect on Hegel studies
Dialogue and dialectic : eight hermeneutical studies on Plato by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author approaches Plato's dialogues as live discussions in which the concrete concerns of the participants define the horizons of discourse. He takes up such perplexing problems of Plato's though as the role of poetry in the state and the theory of ideal numbers and brings to them a fresh understanding. With its emphasis on the dialogue form and the dramatic situation, this work complements the main tendencies of the analytical tradition which dominates contemporary Anglo-Saxon writing on Plato

Heidegger's ways by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The combination of author and subject matter found here makes an unusually interesting text on the Continental European Philosophy of the twentieth century. As Heidegger's former student, colleague and lifelong friend, Gadamer offers a particularly insightful commentary on Heidegger's thinking. Not only do the essays focus on Heidegger's thought, but they also often begin with a description of the philosophical scene in which he first appeared, giving the reader a genuine feel for the kind of impact he made. But the essays do not leave off in the past; rather, they lead into the present, giving Heidegger a voice which continues to have a revolutionary impact." "The text does not only provide a commentary on Heidegger; it also provides a fascinating look at Gadamer himself. The narratives provide us with an intimate look at both the author and his hermeneutics at work, and his commentary on Heidegger's thought is a commentary on his own thought as well."--Jacket
