Book description

Hermeneutics is a major theoretical and practical form of intellectual enquiry, central not only to philosophy but many other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. With phenomenology and existentialism, it is also one of the twentieth century’s most important philosophical movements and includes major thinkers such as Heidegger, Gadamer and Ricoeur. The Routledge Companion to Hermeneutics is an outstanding guide and reference source to the key philosophers, topics and themes in this exciting subject and is the first volume of its kind.

Comprising over fifty chapters by a team of international contributors the Companion is divided into five parts:

  • main figures in the hermeneutical tradition movement, including Heidegger, Gadamer and Ricoeur
  • main topics in hermeneutics such as language, truth, relativism and history
  • the engagement of hermeneutics with central disciplines such as literature, religion, race and gender, and art
  • hermeneutics and world philosophies including Asian, Islamic and Judaic thought
  • hermeneutic challenges and debates, such as critical theory, structuralism and phenomenology.
