Course

Philosophy of Language and Hermeneutics

Description

It has been pointed out repeatedly that analytic philosophy, especially philosophy of language, and continental philosophy, especially hermeneutics, are incompatible or at least, pass each other like « two ships in the night ». This seminar will examine critically this supposed incompatibility, by confronting discordant voices, e.g. Carnap-Heidegger, Wittgenstein-Ricoeur, McDowell-Gadamer, in order to highlight points of concordance or a space for dialogue.
