Strong Hermeneutics

Full Product Description

An investigation of some of the most important and controversial issues in philosophy today, this text presents a critical picture of both the "weak" or postmodern view of ethics evident in the work of Nietzsche, Richard Rorty and Jean-Francois Lyotard; and the enlightenment view, descended from Kant and taken up by Jurgen Habermas. Nicholas Smith argues that neither of these views can provide a proper framework for ethics. He instead advocates an alternative, a strong hermeneutics. Drawing on the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer, Paul Ricoeur and Charles Taylor, the text provides an account of how we must understand ethics and identity today.

Strong Hermeneutics by Nicholas H. Smith was published by Taylor& Francis Ltd in August 1997. The ISBN for Strong Hermeneutics is 9780415164320.
