This, the first of four volumes in a series on continental philosophy, is an attempt to construe the interpretation of texts (i.e. the art of hermeneutics) as a political answer to a given historical situation. Professor Rosen views interpretation as the result neither of changing fashion nor of innocent playfulness, but rather as a self-conscious (even if disguised or concealed) political strategy. In this book, he discusses the German hermeneutical tradition, the Alexander Kojeve-Leo Straus relationship, and current leading Continental and American philsophers such as Derrida and Rorty.show more
