In this book, Ingolf U. Dalferth outlines a philosophical theory of hermeneutics, which unfolds hermeneutics as the theory and art of the practice of understanding. Understanding is a basic orientational activity of human beings who orientate themselves in the complex meaning worlds of human life through communicating with others in and through texts. The book analyses the understanding of understanding (philosophical hermeneutics), what it means to communicate through texts (semiotic hermeneutics of texts), how this characterises human life and existence (existential hermeneutics of Dasein), and how this can help to elucidate the complex meaning practices of Christian life and faith (theological hermeneutics of faith).
