Written for highschool students? No way. I read a lot of philosophy books but this one was a tough read. Perhaps because the topic. Gadamer was not a very clear philosopher. Hermenuetics is a confusing topic anyways. Or should I say, its a thick subject.
I decided to read this book after hacking through "Truth and Method". I think its going to help me.
