The objective of this course is the analysis of the points of departure, concepts, and methods of hermeneutics in the 19th century. The analysis will mostly focus on a study of key hermeneutic concepts of understanding, the interpretation of historical meaning, the hermeneutic circle, tradition and historicity and their methodological meaning for modern historical sciences. Attention will also be paid to analysis of the relationship between explanation and understanding, the relationship between the philosophical grounds of modern natural science and the new expanding human sciences. The course will cultivate the interpretive ability of students in connection with the tradition of human scholarship.
