John W. Stanley - Translator
Dennis J. Schmidt - Introduction

Essays in German Literary Theory
Hans-Georg Gadamer - Author

Gallagher presents a philosophically careful and solid discussion of each position and four principles central to it, including evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses; then he searches out parallel standpoints in current educational theory and shows whether or how each parall...(Read More)

Merleau-Ponty, Hermeneutics, and Postmodernism (October 1992)
Thomas W. Busch - Editor
Shaun Gallagher - Editor

“The topic is a live one, important both in itself and for what it adds to contemporary thought. Rereading Merleau-Ponty in the light of the post-structural writings since his death suggests that he has something in common with them but that he also has something more which might add significantly to their views.” — Lewis E. Hahn, Southern Illinois University

This book opens up new dimensions in the philosoph...(Read More)
