Hermeneutic Dialogue and Social Science
A Critique of Gadamer and Habermas
Published March 29th 2001 by Routledge – 192 pages
This book explores the writings of Gadamer and Habermas on hermeneutics and the methodology of the social sciences. By re-examining their views of earlier interpretive theorists, from Wilhelm Dilthey to Max Weber and Alfred Schutz, it offers a radical challenge to their idea of the 'dialogue' between researchers and their subjects.
