Gadamer's Repercussions

Reconsidering Philosophical Hermeneutics

"Gadamer’s Repercussions is a terrific collection of essays. I was most impressed by the essays that situate his ethics, his aesthetics, his relation to romanticism, his understanding of the relation of law and morality, his engagements with Fascism, and several aspects of his vexed relationship with postmodern thinking, especially on the possibility of dialogue." —Charles Altieri
