Gadamer and Ricoeur: Critical Horizons for Contemporary Hermeneutics

Hans-Georg Gadamer and Paul Ricoeur have been of an important hermeneutical philosophers of the 20 th century. Gadamer single-handedly revived hermeneutics as a philosophical box along with his many essays and his masterpiece, fact and process.

Ludwig Wittgenstein--a cultural point of view : philosophy in the darkness of this time

Within the preface to his "Philosophical Investigations" Ludwig Wittgenstein expresses pessimism concerning the tradition of his time and doubts to whether his rules will be understood in one of these time: 'I cause them to public with uncertain emotions. it's not very unlikely that it's going to fall to the lot of this paintings, in its poverty and within the darkness of this time, to convey mild into one mind or one other - yet, after all, it's not likely'.

Sample text

For in this respect, the Kantian position is itself skeptical, since it clearly denies knowledge of things­in­themselves. In this sense, Maimon's reception of the critical philosophy is not a simple rejection of it but rather an interesting elaboration of one of its intrinsic consequences.  Just as Aenesidemus had established a series of skeptical tropes questioning the veracity of sense perception, so Schulze now extends this perspective to the level of conceptual principles.  But regardless of whether, if Schulze's argument can be established, it will infirm Kant's position, there can be no such doubt with respect to the elementary philosophy.

Although much of the discussion in this work in fact is concerned directly with Reinhold, Schulze's interest is not in the position as such, but rather with it as representative of the critical philosophy.  which strives in all possible ways to destroy its reliability and steadfastness" (B 451).  For lack of knowledge can never be an end point of the discussion, but is rather the cause of its beginning (see B 786).  It follows that there is a basic disagreement between Schulze and Kant: Schulze holds that it is sufficient merely to endeavor to refute any and all claims to know, as he here tries to do; on the contrary, Kant believes that the task of criticism of other views is not merely a necessary preparation to the formulation of a truly critical position.

But it is also evident that the emphasis on either deductive interrelation or a ground to the exclusion of the other perspective results in a vastly different concept of system. 6 Page 19 It further has been suggested that Kant's successors can be regarded mainly as the conceptual stepchildren of Lambert.  Nor is it accurate to regard the post­Kantian thinkers in general, especially Fichte and Hegel, as concerned with the concept of a final ground to thought at the expense of the deductive interrelation of the elements of their respective views, or certainly, as concerns Fichte, at the expense of the discussion of the concept of system as such.
