Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Extends critical discussions of Hegel into contemporary debates about the nature of interpretation and theories of philosophical hermeneutics.

Hegel, History, and Interpretation is a collection of essays that extend critical discussions of Hegel into contemporary debates about the nature of interpretation and theories of philosophical hermeneutics. Essays by Susan Armstrong, John D. Caputo, William Desmond, Robert Dostal, Shaun Gallagher, Philip T. Grier, H. S. Harris, Walter Lammi, George R. Lucas, Jr., Michael Prosch, Tom Rockmore, and P. Christopher Smith explore difficult issues concerning historical interpretation, the nature of hermeneutics at the end of metaphysics, the social and critical function of reason, and the inadequacy of Hegel's interpretation of the experience of otherness. In the course of these essays Hegel is made to converse with Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Heidegger as well as with contemporary theorists such as Gadamer, Habermas, Foucault, and Derrida. Thus the contributors explore both the themes that form the common ground between Hegelian philosophy and contemporary interpretation theory and the mixed reception of Hegel's philosophy into contemporary discussions about history, deconstruction, critical theory, and alterity.

"Gallagher has brought together in a clear, thematic harmony the invited papers of four world-class intellectuals (Harris, Caputo, Desmond, and Rockmore), six professors well-known and widely respected in their fields (Lucas, Dostal, Gallagher, Smith, Armstrong, and Grier), and two younger philosophers just beginning their careers (Lammi and Prosch). I know of no book that deals as directly with the issue of how Hegel figures into postmodern ways of interpretation." --Eric v.d. Luft, SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse, Library

"The overall quality of the essays is high. The book focuses on the relevance of Hegel in the context of contemporary philosophy. It is relevant in the arena of Hegel studies and for those interested in postmodernist themes generally." -- William Maker, Clemson University
