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.
