    1 thought on “Introduction to Philosophical Hermeneutics”

    1. Read this before you read other books in the field. The theory of understanding proposed by Gadamer, the leading philosopher in hermeneutics, is that historical context and dialoge are two of the necessary requirements for understanding. This is how Grondin approaches the book. From Philo to Habermas, Grondin's historical approach documents the development of hermeneutics to give these philosophical ideas their necessary context, and to show how hermeneutics has developed as a philosophical dial [...]

    2. One of the most difficult books I have ever read but it is also one of the most insightful. With the help of philosophy dictionary, I enjoyed the book a great deal.

    3. از متن: « ما مرتکب مغالطه ای تاریخی نگر خواهیم شد اگر بکوشیم حقیقت را نسبی توصیف کنیم در هنگامی که حقیقت به شیوه های متفاوت ملاحظه می شود. تا آنجا که علم هرمنوتیک از نسبی نگری سخن می گوید، نسبی نگری صرفا یک شبح است ــ افسانه ای که گمان می رود مردمان را می ترساند اما چنین واقعیتی و [...]

    4. Really a terrific introduction. Grondin does a nice job of presenting a historical introduction to hermeneutics by showing how the philosophical contexts and questions changed, broke off, were forgotten, etc. as he moves from the ancient Greeks to the German Romantics and finally to Heidegger, Gadamer, and Derrida. Clearly written, a bit technical in places for, e.g an underclassman undergraduate level of philosophical background, but overall it would be a perfect recourse for teaching an underg [...]

    5. Successfully argues for the presence of philosophical hermeneutics in Greek philosophy. Identifies thinkers from the 17th through 19th centuries who had not been previously identified as hermeneuticists. Successfully explains Heidegger in 5 pages; successfully explains Derrida in 3. Throws in lots of humor, and ends with a twist. It's half bibliography, but that's not an entirely bad thing. If you're interested in 20th century philosophy and don't mind reading really really slowly (this is a ver [...]

    6. Really good and (I think) comprehensive review of the field of hermeneutics and all the debates around it. The author focuses especially on the thesis of the universality of hermeneutics: the claim that everything is mediated through language and that interpretation therefore is universal. Although Grondin is pretty much partisan to Gadamer's hermeneutics (no wonder he was willing to write the foreword), this book still gives a good and instructive overview of the field. Before reading I was wor [...]

    7. Okay, it depends on what you think "introduction" means (which may be the book's first test in hermeneutics). This book assumes you have a firm grasp on historical philosophy and hermeneutics to begin with. I read about 40 pages and had to put it down. It's full of names and references that, unless you're pretty familiar with the broader theories, you won't understand where it's going. It's also a very poor translation, with clear and simple sentences like this one on page 12: "Repudiating the m [...]

    8. اگر از فصول ابتدایی و تاریخی کتاب بگذریم، این کتاب ژان گروندن چیزی به کتاب مختصرترش با عنوان «هرمنوتیک» (ترجمه‌ی محمدرضا ابوالقاسمی / نشر ماهی) نیفزود و این با توجه به حجم کتاب قابل درک است. نکته‌ی قابل ذکر دیگر همدلی همیشه‌حاضر گروندن با گادامر است که گویی گادامر را محک بررس [...]

    9. love this book. not sure about its reliance on the "inner word" for justifying the universal project of hermeneutics too mythical not buying the argument about the uniqueness of ways of knowing in human sciences.
