The philosophy of Gadamer by Jean Grondin ( )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ideas of the German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer (1900-2002) have had considerable influence, both in their own right as the leading modern exposition of philosophical hermeneutics and in interpreting the works of others, especially Heidegger, Hegel and Plato. This introduction provides authoritative interpretation and exposition of Gadamer's monumental work, Truth and Method (1960). With exemplary clarity Grondin presents the key themes of the book - method, humanism, aesthetic judgement, truth, the work of history - and provides readers with an unrivalled guide through Gadamer's often complex and difficult ideas. Of particular value is the way in which Grondin situates Gadamer's concerns within the wider context of traditional philosophical issues, showing, for example, how Gadamer both continues, and significantly modifies, the philosophical problem of the method as it begins with Descartes, and how he advances rather than simply follows Heidegger's treatment of the relationship of thinking and language. In this way Grondin shows how the issues of philosophical hermeneutics are relevant for contemporary concerns in science and history. The Philosophy of Gadamer is essential reading for all students, beginning or experienced, setting out to tackle Gadamer's challenging body of work

Hans-Georg Gadamer : a biography by Jean Grondin ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hans-Georg Gadamer (1900-2002) was one of the greatest philosophers of our era. He was also at the center of some of the century's darkest, most complex historical events, for he chose to remain in his native Germany in the 1930s, neither supporting Hitler nor actively opposing him, but negotiating instead an "unpolitical" position that allowed him to continue his philosophical work. In this book, Jean Grondin appraises Gadamer's life and achievement. Drawing on countless interviews with Gadamer and his contemporaries, Gadamer's personal correspondence, and extensive archival research, Grondin traces Gadamer's life as an academician and the development of his ideas, placing them in the context of his times. He sheds light on the genesis and accomplishment of Gadamer's major opus, Truth and Method, the bible of modern-day hermeneutics. And he addresses the question of Gadamer's attitude and actions amid the catastrophe of Nazi Germany, painting a balanced portrait of a scholar who tried to preserve German culture and tradition in the face of an invasive menace

HauptbeschreibungSinn der Auslegung ist es immer gewesen, hinter das geäußerte Wort zum inneren?Logos?, zu dem, was die Worte sagen wollen, vorzudringen. Schon das Sprechen ist ein Interpretieren, indem es Gedachtes in Worte zu fassen sucht. Deshalb verstanden die Griechen das Aussagen als eine Interpretation. Die Absicht der Auslegung ging dahin, diesen Vorgang umzukehren und vom Ausgedrückten auf den dahinter stehenden Geist zurückzukommen. Für die heutige Hermeneutik, die sich im Anschluss an Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Heidegger und Gadamer entwickelte, äußert sich diese universale Struktur
