Sample text

Gadamer’s final verdict on Dilthey is that he did not entirely succeed in his mission of making the human sciences the redeemers of humanity, as he is never quite able to escape the shadow of the empirical sciences in the way he saw and characterized the nature of the human sciences and, by extension, philosophy. As a result the human sciences remain xxx Translators’ Introduction tied to the ethos of detached observation rather than that of engaged praxis. It is in this respect that Gadamer believes himself to have gone past Dilthey by finding recourse to the Aristotelian concept of phronēsis, which, Gadamer argues, articulates itself in a dialogical manner, thus weaving it together with Plato’s dialectic of question and answer.

Now, my question is the following: what does this problem of temporality mean for the justification or the conceptual treatment of the possibility of faith? Certainly, nothing more than this will ever be granted to the philosopher. I think that we have gained an access here, especially through the hermeneutic turn in phenomenology – this hermeneutic turn that, in fact, goes back to the Heidegger of Being and Time, who on this point follows Dilthey and attempts to show that there is no appropriate concept of human existence that is not completely dependent on this wonder and puzzle of the ‘there’ [Da] in existence [Dasein].

It is the purpose that guides the makers so to speak into doing what they do. The fourfold concept of cause thus emerges from a very specific kind of human experience, the experience of producing something. Gadamer argues that it is precisely this experience that acts as the starting point for Aristotle’s investigation into nature. He sees nature analogously to the human producer with the fundamental difference that nature produces something from out of itself so to speak. From the standpoint of such an experience, of course, nature itself seems as if it were guided by a hidden purpose in its abundant workings.
