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

47 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 866 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 )

36 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and French and held by 413 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

La philosophie de la religion by Jean Grondin( Book )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 279 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
Hermeneutische Wahrheit? : zum Wahrheitsbegriff Hans-Georg Gadamers by Jean Grondin( Book )

17 editions published between 1944 and 1994 in German and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

17 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in French and held by 178 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)
