The philosophy of Gadamer by Jean Grondin( )

36 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,696 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

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

9 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 500 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

La philosophie de la religion by Jean Grondin( Book )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pour la tradition de la philosophie comme de la religion, de Platon à Heidegger en passant par Thomas d'Aquin ou Spinoza, la raison était ce qui nous rapprochait du divin. Or elle sert souvent aujourd'hui à contester la réalité de Dieu. Cet ouvrage remet en perspective les rapports entre la religion et la philosophie, tout en expliquant la place que la religion occupe dans notre société
Paul Ricoeur by Jean Grondin( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in French and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. -- 4ème de couverture
Hermeneutische Wahrheit? : zum Wahrheitsbegriff Hans-Georg Gadamers by Jean Grondin( Book )

18 editions published between 1944 and 1994 in German and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le tournant dans la pensée de Martin Heidegger by Jean Grondin( Book )

20 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in French and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le tournant se manifeste sous plusieurs aspects dans les écrits de Heidegger. Tantôt il paraît marquer une rupture avec l'ontologie fondamentale de 1927, tantôt il dénote, selon l'aveu même de Heidegger, une simple inflexion de la pensée le long d'un itinéraire continu. Mais la Kehre en vient aussi à désigner une événement au sein de l'être lui-même et de l'histoire de la pensée occidentale, celle de la métaphysique. La pensée du tournant a donc partie liée avec le dépassement de la métaphysique, autour duquel se rassemble une bonne part de la philosophie contemporaine. C'est que le tournant heideggerien procède d'un tournant plus fondamental de l'être et de son histoire. Cette étude se propose d'en sonder la genèse, la motivation et les ressources." (J. Grondin)

Le tournant herméneutique de la phénoménologie by Jean Grondin( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La phénoménologie propose de renouveler le projet essentiel de la philosophie par la simplicité de son retour aux "choses elles-mêmes". Si elle est herméneutique, c'est d'abord parce ce que, selon Husserl, les phénomènes ne se montrent pas sans intention ou sans horizon de sens. Ses héritiers en ont tiré des conséquences plus radicales encore : si une herméneutique est indispensable pour Heidegger, c'est que les choses elles-mêmes, en commençant par la question qu'est pour elle-même l'existence, restent le plus souvent recouvertes et ne peuvent se découvrir qu'à la faveur d'une destruction, à la fois historique et éthique. Une herméneutique phénoménologique de la compréhension ne sera cependant développée qu'après Heidegger, chez Gadamer et Ricœur, dans leur mise en lumière de l'universalité de l'élément langagier et du travail de l'histoire, qui amènera Jacques Derrida à radicaliser, pour sa part, le programme heideggérien d'une déconstruction de la "métaphysique". Le présent ouvrage se propose de défendre la rigueur de ce tournant herméneutique qui rassemble plus qu'il n'oppose les grands artisans de la tradition phénoménologique
