Item description for Schleiermacher: Hermeneutics and Criticism: And Other Writings (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy) by Friedrich Schleiermacher, Andrew Bowie & Desmond M. Clarke...
Written by the philosopher and theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher as a method for the interpretation and textual criticism of the New Testament, this is the founding text of modern hermeneutics. It develops ideas about language and the interpretation of texts that are in many respects still unsurpassed and are becoming current in the contemporary philosophy of language. Contrary to the traditional view of Schleiermacher as a theorist of empathetic interpretation, in this text he offers a view of understanding that acknowledges both the structurally and historically determined aspects of language and the need to take account of the activity of the individual subject in the constitution of meaning.
