by Jean GrondinRead this before you read other books in the field. The theory of understanding proposed by Gadamer, the leading philosopher in hermeneutics, is that historical context and dialoge are two of the necessary requirements for understanding. This is how Grondin approaches the book.From Philo to Habermas, Grondin's historical approach documents the development of hermeneutics to give these philosophical ideas their necessary context, and to show how hermeneutics has developed as a philosophical dialogue. The text is easy to read, even though you can still feel it is a translation at times.
