Overview

The Hermeneutic Tradition: From Ast to Ricoeur by Gayle L. Ormiston

The major statements of the leading figures in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century German and French hermeneutic traditions.

Here are the major statements of the leading figures in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century German and French hermeneutic traditions—the major statements on the aims, methods, and techniques of interpretation. Some of these appear here for the first time in English.

This book establishes the context for contemporary analyses of interpretation. Part I traces the evolution of hermeneutics from Friedrich Ast and Friedrich Schleiermacher through Wilhelm Dilthey to Martin Heidegger’s placing of hermeneutics at the center of the ontological analysis of human being. Part II follows the development of the Heideggerian tradition in the writings of Hans-Georg Gadamer. Gadamer’s “philosophical hermeneutics” is then located at the center of several important exchanges with more traditional, objective hermeneutical methodologists like Emilio Betti, ideology-critics like Jürgen Habermas, and linguistic-phenomenological thinkers like Paul Ricoeur.
