This booklet establishes the context for modern analyses of interpretation. half I strains the evolution of hermeneutics from Friedrich Ast and Friedrich Schleiermacher via Wilhelm Dilthey to Martin Heidegger's putting of hermeneutics on the heart of the ontological research of man or woman. half II follows the improvement of the Heideggerian culture within the writings of Hans-Georg Gadamer. Gadamer's "philosophical hermeneutics" is then positioned on the heart of a number of vital exchanges with extra conventional, goal hermeneutical methodologists like Emilio Betti, ideology-critics like Jurgen Habermas, and linguistic-phenomenological thinkers like Paul Ricoeur.

50 Thus, whereas distantiation was a fault which the dialogue with tradition sought to overcome, Ricoeur's focus on the text views it as a positive element which makes interpretation possible. Distantiation is implied by writing as Page 24 a fixation of discourse, and this fixation makes the autonomy of the text possible, especially with respect to its author, its historical context, and its original audience.  325).  Although the hermeneutics of tradition closes this possibility by prematurely introjecting the concept of appropriation against alienating distantiation, Ricoeur's acknowledgment of the positive potential of distantiation can allow the ''critique of false consciousness" to become an integral and acute part of hermeneutics.

From a historical perspective, the first of these dialogues took place between Gadamer and Emilio Betti, the Italian jurist and legal historian whose Teoria generale della interpretazione appeared in 1955.  Following the appearance of Truth and Method, Betti objected to Gadamer's rejection of method on the grounds that such a lack of methodology threatens the objective standing and standards of interpretation.  164).  Fourth is the ''canon of the hermeneutical correspondence of meaning" or "meaning­adequacy in understanding," which encourages the interpreter to bring his or her own subjectivity into the "closest harmony with the stimulation" received from the interpreted object: that is to say, while recognizing that the interpreter will understand things in terms of his or her own experiences, every effort must be made to control one's "prejudices" and to subordinate one's experiences to the meaningfulness that the interpreted object seeks to communicate.

" As Montaigne's comments indicate, interpretation is the interpretation(s) of interpretation(s): in this regard, as Nancy notes, politically and poetically we each share and multiply our voice(s) with the voice(s) of others—we each have a stake in determining the path(s) of our dialogues.
