Questions and Prospects


A collection of essays that questions how philosophy, literature, and social science relate to the theory and strategy of interpretation, Gary Shapiro and Alan Sica’s Hermeneutics: Questions and Prospects synthesizes a great breadth of arguments ranging from “The Hermeneutics of Suspicion” to “Conflicting Interpretations in History.” This collection represents both the best current works on the nature of interpretation and the necessity for such work to go beyond narrow disciplinary interests.

Contributors to this collection are Emilio Betti, Anthony Giddens, Fred Dallmayr, W.H. Dray, Rex Martin, Paul de Man, Hans-Georg Gadamer, J. N. Mohanty, Hubert Dreyfus, Richard Palmer, Gerald Bruns, Gary Stonum, John O’Neill, and Gayatri Spivak.
