  • Image preview 3:30pm: The Ethical Dimensions of Understanding in Gadamer’s Hermeneutics, Monica Vilhauer (Roanoke College)
    In this colloquium presentation, Dr. Vilhauer introduces the field of philosophical hermeneutics (the philosophy of interpretation developed by Hans-Georg Gadamer), and argues for the ethical dimensions of genuine dialogue, in which communication and a common understanding take place.  Such dialogue is central to all efforts of understanding, whether one is trying to grasp a work of art, a text, historical events, or another in living conversation.  It is also central to philosophy, whose aim is not to out-argue one’s interlocutor, but to come to a shared grasp of our world and its truths. In her accessible presentation, Vilhauer aims to illuminate the practical value of hermeneutics for the humanities and for life at large, while also highlighting her original work.
