Grondin beg In this wide-ranging historical introduction to philosophical hermeneutics, Jean Grondin discusses the major figures from Philo to Habermas, analyzes conflicts between various interpretive schools, and pjilosophical a persuasive critique of Gadamer’s view of hermeneutic history, though in other ways Gadamer’s Truth and Method serves as a model for Grondin’s approach.
There are full chapters devoted to Heidegger and Gadamer as well as shorter discussions of Betti, Habermas, and Derrida. Because he is the first to pay close attention to pre-Romantic figures, Grondin is able to show that the history of hermeneutics cannot be viewed philosophhical a gradual, steady progression in the direction of complete universalization.
His book makes it clear that even in the early period, hermeneutic thinkers acknowledged a universal aspect in interpretation—that long before Schleiermacher, hermeneutics was philosophical and not merely practical.

Read this before you read philosohpical 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 Read this before you read other books in the field. From Philo to Habermas, Grondin’s historical approach documents the development of hermeneutics to give philoxophical philosophical ideas their necessary context, and to show how hermeneutics has developed as a philosophical dialogue.
The text is easy to read, even though you can still feel it is a hermeneufics at times. Oct 05, Ruby Foster added it. One of the most difficult books I have ever read but philosopgical is also one of the most insightful. With the help of philosophy dictionary, I enjoyed the book a great deal. Mar 24, Michael A.
Introduction to Philosophical Hermeneutics
I think the title was a bit misleading: Still, an interesting read. Hermeneutics as a field started theologically, arguably with Philo. It then progressed to Origen who posited that everything in Scripture had to be interpreted metaphorically. Augustine contributed taking a more moderate review, saying that there were “dark” parts that needed to be interpreted. Dannhauer, Chaldenius, and Maier I think the title was a bit misleading: Dannhauer, Chaldenius, and Maier are all given chapters here,but the first “important” hermeneuticist was Schleiermacher.
Soon problems of historicism were ran into that the next “important” hermeneuticist, Dilthey, tried to solve. But ultimately hermeneutics were on the fringe of philosophy until Martin Heidegger and Hans-Georg Gadamer who secularized it even Dilthey still had a tinge of protestantism in his hermeneutics.
Project MUSE – Introduction to Philosophical Hermeneutics (review)
This lead to Gadamer’s “universiability of language”. The bulk of the book is mostly about Heidegger and Gadamer, but I feel a seriously opportunity was missed by excluding Ricoeur he is mentioned once or twice. Another thing I didn’t like is that quotations often in Latin or German were left untranslated in footnotes, and Latin phrases are used here and there, though usually with context. I would recommend this book to those who would like a short, fairly accessible though I would still recommend a background in philosophy survey of the history of philosophical hermeneutics.
Nov 13, Carlo rated it really liked it. Really a terrific introduction. Grondin does a nice job of presenting a historical introduction to hermeneutics by hermfneutics how the philosophical contexts and questions changed, broke off, were forgotten, etc.
Clearly written, a bit technical in places for, e. That said, perhaps the best thing about Grondin’s book is the extensive bibliography which takes up almost half the bookorganized historically and also thematically, and including important recent secondary lit.
Gadamer and Ricoeuer and Derrida. Jan 28, Tom Head rated it it was amazing. Successfully argues for the presence of philosophical hermeneutics in Greek philosophy.
Introduction to Philosophical Hermeneutics by Jean Grondin
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 Successfully argues for the presence of philosophical hermeneutics in Greek philosophy.
If you’re interested in 20th century philosophy and don’t mind reading really really slowly this is a very short book but it took me several days to digestyou’re in for a treat—not just because Grondin does a great job of surveying the most interesting area of contemporary philosophy, popularizing it in iean way that empowers readers to formulate their own opinions about it, but also hremeneutics his own reflections on the topic are profound, original, and very well-presented.
Feb 11, Bart philosophicql it really liked jen Shelves: 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: Although Grondin is pretty much partisan to Gadamer’s hermeneutics no wonder he was willing to write the forewordthis book still gives a good and instructive overview of the field.
Before reading I was wor Really good and I think comprehensive review of the field of hermeneutics and all the debates around it.
Before reading I was worried this book might hermenetuics too difficult considering the other reviewsbut it was not too difficult for me, a third-year undergraduate student of philosophy.
Jun 29, Brandon Giella rated it did not like it. Okay, philosophica depends on what you grndin “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 philosopyical on page I know I’m not the smartest person, but I expected something a little simpler, since it’s called an “introduction.
