Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The review listed on the B&N website is incorrect. It does NOT describe this book. This book is excellent for those who are interested in the study of hermeneutics. The disscussions and review of other theorists works were very helpful. It is helpful to also read other works by Kearney and Ricoeur.
