Hans-Georg Gadamer

Hans-Georg Gadamer

German philosopher

What man needs is not just the persistent posing of ultimate questions, but the sense of what is feasible, what is possible, what is correct, here and now. The philosopher, of all people, must, I think, be aware of the tension between what he claims to achieve and the reality in which he finds himself.More Hans-Georg Gadamer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It is one of the primary motives of modern art that it wants to abolish the distance which the viewer, the consumer, the audience maintain vis-a-vis a work of art. There is no doubt that the leaders of the creative artists of the last 50 years concentrated their efforts mainly on eliminating that distance.More Hans-Georg Gadamer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Long before we understand ourselves through the process of self-examination, we understand ourselves in a self-evident way in the family, society and state in which we live.More Hans-Georg Gadamer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
