Spreading the Word: Lecture on Gadamer and Hermeneutics

In today’s post, I would like to share with you another fascinating lecture by Dr. Michael Sugrue – Gadamer: Hermeneutics and the Human Sciences. Philosophical hermeneutics is a branch of philosophy interested in human understanding, interpretation, and meaning creation. Hans-Georg Gadamer was a 20th-century German philosopher, a leading thinker whose major work “Truth and Method” (1960) contributed greatly to the development of philosophical hermeneutics, seriously considering, among other things, the concept of truth as something broader than and irreducible to only the scientific method. Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, I hope to share an insightful and thought-provoking article or video every weekend. I feel it is essential to care for our physical and mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling to find meaning. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” posts are an online version of sharing meaningful stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
