Gadamers Century

The Review of Metaphysics:

What makes this collection of essays both unique and invaluable is its attempt to perform a Gadamerian “fusion of horizons”; it not only brings philosophy together with other disciplines such as religion, art, and poetry, it also brings together Continental and analytic responses to Gadamer’s hermeneutical project and to the issues confronting philosophy in Gadamer’s century, a century that paradoxically remains ours.

Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews:

In sum, this volume is a work of careful scholarship as evidenced by its twelve-page bibliography and seventeen-page index, but more importantly it is a collection of philosophically important essays by internationally recognized scholars. Certainly it is a worthy tribute to Gadamer, but it is more than this. It is a valuable and reliable access to many dimensions of Gadamer’s thought in their present and continuing significance. It explores the parallels in Gadamer to Donald Davidson and Ludwig Wittgenstein, and it lays out the importance of hermeneutics to interpretation theory in the social sciences and to the understanding of non-Western philosophy.
Richard E. Palmer, MacMurray College (Illinois)
