Hegel's dialectic : five hermeneutical studies by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 831 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

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dialogue and dialectic : eight hermeneutical studies on Plato by Hans-Georg Gadamer( Book )

7 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 46 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
