Günter Figal shows that hermeneutics is a model which makes it particularly easy to understand the phenomenological access to the world.
This book is a collection of studies which deal with the systematic formulation of a phenomenological-hermeneutic philosophy. The author shows that hermeneutics is a model which makes it particularly easy to understand the phenomenological access to the world. However, hermeneutics can only be developed consistently as phenomenology, since it is only in this way that it can fulfill philosophy's claim to presuppositionlessness.
