|Hermeneutics: hermeneutics is, in general, the theory of what it means to understand utterances, especially texts. Problems of hermeneutics are the historical distance to the sources, with a corresponding shift in meaning as well as peculiarities in the language usage of authors as well as intended or unintended incompleteness. In the narrower sense, hermeneutics is a set of developed methods for text comprehension. See also meaning, interpretation, language, symbols, understanding, meaning change, signs._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
Definition Hermeneutics/Foucault: We call it the totality of knowledge and techniques that allow to let the signs speak and discover their meaning.
Definition semiology/Foucault: allows to distinguish where signs are, what they instituted as signs, their connections and laws of their concatenation.
The 16th century has stored semiology and hermeneutics one above the other in the form of similarity.
There is a "notch" between the similarities that the characters, which form the speech, form and expand, so the thought and its infinite effort is given exactly there its own space: at that distance, they will have to draw their lines in an unlimited zigzag between the similar and the similar to them._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
