Overview

"Hans-Georg Gadamer (1900-2002) was Professor of Philosophy at the Universities of Leipzig and Heidelberg. One of the foremost philosophers of the last century, he developed a groundbreaking philosophy of hermeneutics." Truth and Method is Gadamer's most influential work, his magnum opus. Gadamer attacks the objectivity of Enlightenment reason and suggests that we need to see prejudices as present in all understanding. It is the work that defines the contemporary hermeneutic project of theoretical interpretation and is undoubtedly one of the most important texts in twentieth century philosophy.
