Hans-Georg Gadamer : a biography by Jean Grondin( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 488 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
The philosophy of Gadamer by Jean Grondin( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and French and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ideas of the German philosopher, Hans-Georg Gadamer have had considerable influence both in their own right as the leading modern exposition of philosophical hermeneutics and interpreting the works of Heidegger, Plato and Hegel. This work covers the trail of Gadamer's thought. Taking 'Truth and Method' (1960, translated 1975) as the axis of the interpretation of Gadamer's thought, Jean Grondin lays out the key themes of the work - method, humanism, aesthetic judgement, truth, the work of history - with exemplary clarity. Gadamer's concerns are situated in the context of traditional philosophical issues, showing, for example, how Gadamer both continues, and significantly modifies, the philosophical problem as it begins with Descartes and 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

Ceux qui ont eu le privilège d'être ses contemporains et de suivre l'évolution de son œuvre étaient habitués à voir un gros livre de Ricœur paraître tous les cinq ou six ans. Ce livre revenait sur des sujets familiers de ses lecteurs, comme la volonté, l'agir ou l'identité, la question du temps, de l'histoire, de l'interprétation, le langage, le texte ou le récit, mais les abordait à partir d'angles et de références chaque fois nouveaux. L'œuvre est maintenant achevée, lue dans le monde entier. Elle exerce une profonde influence sur les sciences humaines. Pour introduire à cette œuvre complexe, Jean Grondin suit le fil rouge de l'herméneutique. Il donne ainsi à comprendre la richesse de la pensée de l'un des plus importants philosophes du XXe siècle. Il offre aussi un portrait sensible de celui qui a proposé une philosophie de l'homme agissant et souffrant
