In fact history does not belong to us; but we belong to it.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [08/15/2011 05:08:45]
It was clear to me that the forms of consciousness of our inherited and acquired historical education - aesthetic consciousness and historical consciousness - presented alienated forms of our true historical being.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [08/15/2011 05:08:02]
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 [08/15/2011 05:08:11]
The focus of subjectivity is a distorting mirror.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [08/15/2011 05:08:53]
History does not belong to us; we belong to it.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The hermeneutic consciousness, which must be awakened and kept awake, recognized that in the age of science philosophy's claim of superiority has something chimerical and unreal about it. But though the will of man is more than ever intensifying its criticism of what has gone before to the point of becoming utopian or eschatological consciousness, the hermeneutic consciousness seeks to confront that will with something of the truth of remembrance: with what is still and ever again real.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Being that can be understood is language.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
From Gadamer I learned that to understand a given thinker requires one to presuppose that he is right.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the tyranny of hidden prejudices that makes us deaf to what speaks to us in tradition.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I basically only read books that are over 2,000 years old.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing exists except through language.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For both art and the historical sciences are modes of experiencing in which our own understanding of existence comes directly into play.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We cannot understand without wanting to understand, that is, without wanting to let something be said...Understanding does not occur when we try to intercept what someone wants to say to us by claiming we already know it.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The process of translating comprises in its essence the whole secret of human understanding of the world and of social communication.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A cultured society that has fallen away from its religious traditions expects more from art than the aesthetic consciousness and the 'standpoint of art' can deliver. The Romantic desire for a new mythology... gives the artist and his task in the world the consciousness of a new consecration. He is something like a 'secular saviour' for his creations are expected to achieve on a small scale the propitiation of disaster for which an unsaved world hopes.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The real being of language is that into which we are taken up when we hear it - what is said.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The more language is a living operation, the less we are aware of it. Thus it follows from the self-forgetfulness of language that its real being consists in what is said in it.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Unlike seeing, where one can look away, one cannot 'hear away' but must listen ... hearing implies already belonging together in such a manner that one is claimed by what is being said.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The ambiguity of poetic language answers to the ambiguity of human life as a whole, and therein lies its unique value. All interpretations of poetic language only interpret what the poetry has already interpreted.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The essence of the question is the opening up, and keeping open, of possibilities.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The focus of subjectivity is a distorting mirror.More Hans-Georg Gadamer [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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
