Sense, Meaning and Understanding

Towards a Systematic Hermeneutical Philosophy

By Andrzej Przylebski

Sense, Meaning, and Understanding takes seriously the claim of Herbert Schnadelbach (originally expressed by d'Alembert) that even if we condemn the philosophizing in systems, we are still obliged to philosophize systematically. Thus, the book develops a systematic hermeneutical theory, based on Gadamer, Heidegger, Dithey, and Ricoeur. It analyzes different issues connected with this project which constitutes a new prima philsophia, such as: understanding as the main categories of modern anthropology, the notion and the limits of hermeneutical reason, and the hermeneutical view on ethics and on the sciences.
