Synopsis:

This book is a virtual case study in the application of hermeneutical principles to illuminate philosophical texts. The book contains translations of eight of Gadamer's best known essays on Plato....These studies, spanning a period of almost fifty years, are important not only for what they have to say concerning Plato, but also for what they reveal about the development and insightfulness of Gadamer's hermeneutical theory of interpretation.... He] aims at dialogue with Plato and achieves it.-Jeremiah P. Conway, International Philosophical QuarterlyA remarkable felicitous set of translations.-Martin Warner, Times Higher Education SupplementGadamer is among the most eminent followers of Heidegger and rather more accessible that most. It is therefore a service to have these eight essays on Plato, dating from 1934 to 1974, translated competently into English.-ChoiceMay be the best introduction to Gadamer yet published in this country.-W.G. Regier, Modern Language Notes
