Hermeneutics is the philosophical discipline investigating the process of textual interpretation. How do we know how to interpret what we read? Is the meaning of a text what the author intended? How would we know what an author intended? Should we understand a text within a historical context? This course addresses the development of the hermeneutic tradition through the primary tests of such influential philosophers as Friedrich Schleiemacher, Martin Heidegger, Hans-Georg Gadamer, and Paul Ricoeur.
