The Hermeneutic Tradition: From Ast to Ricoeur

By Gayle L. Ormiston; Alan D. Schrift | Go to book overview

interest in the reinterpretation of cultural heritages received from the past and the interest in the futuristic projections of a liberated humanity.

The moment these two interests become radically separate, then hermeneutics and critique will themselves be no more than . . . ideologies!

Translated by John B. Thompson


Notes

* Paul Ricoeur, "Herméneutique et critique des idéologies," in Démythisation et idéologie, edited by Enrico Castelli ( Paris: Aubier Montaigne, 1973), pp. 25- 64.--ED.

Here roughly is the history of the debate. In 1965 the second edition of Hans-Georg Gadamer's Wahrheit und Methade ( Tübingen: J. C. B. Mohr; hereafter cited in the text as WM) appeared, published for the first time in 1960. [English translation: Truth and Method ( London: Sheed and Ward, 1975; hereafter cited in the text as TM)--TRANS.]. This edition contains a preface which replies to a first group of critics. Habermas launched an initial attack in 1967 in Zur Logik der Sozialwissenschaften ( Frankfurt: Suhrkamp), an attack directed against the section of Wahrheit und Methode on which we shall concentrate, namely the rehabilitation of prejudice, authority and tradition, and the famous theory of the "historical-effective consciousness." The same year Gadamer published, in Kleine Schriften I ( Tübingen: J. C .B. Mohr), a lecture from 1965 entitled "Der Universalität des hermneutischen Problems" [ "The Universality of the Hermeneutical Problem," see pp. 147-58 above--ED.] as well as another essay. "Rhetorik, Hermeneutik and Ideologiekritik." Habermas replied in a long essay, "Der Universalitätsanspruch der Hermeneutik," published in the Fesischrift in honour of Gadamer entitled Hermeneutik und Dialektik I ( Tübingen: J. C. B. Mohr, 1970) [ "The Hermencutic Claim to Universality," see pp. 245-72 above--ED.). (The latter two essays are reprinted in a collection edited by Habermas and others entitled Hermeneulik und Ideologiekritik ( Frankfurt: Suhrkamp, 1971).) But the principal work of Habermas which we shall consider is called Erkenntnis und Interesse ( Frankfurt: Suhrkamp, 1968) [English translation: Knowledge and Human Interests, translated by Jeremy J. Shapiro ( London: Heinemann, 1972)--TRANS.]; it contains in the appendix an important exposition of principles and methods published in 1965 as "A general perspective." His conception of the contemporary form of ideology is found in "Technik und Wissen- schaft als 'Ideologie,'" offered to Herbert Marcuse on his seventieth birthday in 1968 [English translation: "Technology and science as 'ideology,'" translated by Jeremy J. Shapiro, in Toward a Rational Society ( London: Heinemann, 1971)-- TRANS.].
