Renowned for his work in philosophical hermeneutics and his writings on Heidegger and Hegel, the German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer in this collection brings into sharp focus his thoughts on the power of language, the social role and influence of science, and the idea of reason. Translator Chris Dawson provides an insightful introduction that places the essays in the context of Gadamer's other writings and discusses their significance for current scholarship in philosophy, literature, history, and science.
