Review quote

"This book represents the best work in the field by one of the best thinkers in the area. Without question, Grondin is in many respects Gadamer's best intepreter." -- Stephen Watson, University of Notre Dame "I like the clarity of this book, and I like its directness and well-articulated understanding of hermeneutics in Heidegger and Gadamer. It is the clearest and most readable scholarly book on the topic in English." -- Richard E. Palmer, MacMurray College
