Strong Hermeneutics: Contingency and Moral Identity

Synopsis

Strong Hermeneutics is a compelling yet accessible investigation of some of the most important and controversial issues in philosophy today. Nicholas Smith presents a clear and critical picture of both the 'weak' or postmodern view of ethics evident in the work of Nietzsche, Richard Rorty and Jean-Franc^D,ois Lyotard; and the enlightenment view, descended from Kant and taken up by Juuml;rgen Habermas.Nicholas Smith argues that neither of these views can provide a proper framework for ethics. He instead advocates a fascinating alternative, a strong hermeneutics. Drawing on the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer, Paul Ricoeur and Charles Taylor, Strong Hermeneutics provides a lucid and challenging account of how we must understand ethics and identity today.
