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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Truth and Method is a landmark work of 20th century thought...[it] is one of the two or three most important works of this century on the philosophy of humanistic studies...Truth and Method reinforces an insight that is threatened with oblivion in our swiftly changing age...The volume is Gadamer's magnum opus, the comprehensive and integrated statement of his rich and penetrating reflections. The translators have rendered Truth and Method with accuracy, which helps contemporary American readers understand Gadamer more fully. The material is powerful...The translation is readable and often powerfully eloquent as Gadamer's German, providing a bridge, not an obstacle, between Gadamer and his readers." - SirReadaLot.org
