Palmer, utilizing largely untranslated sources, treats principally of the conception of hermeneutics enunciated by Heidegger and developed into a "philosophical hermeneutics" by Hans-Georg Gadamer. He provides a brief overview of the field by surveying some half-dozen alternate definitions of the term and by examining in detail the contributions of Friedrich Schleiermacher and Wilhelm Dilthey. In the Manifesto which concludes the book, Palmer suggests the potential significance of hermeneutics for literary interpretation....

Hermeneutics: Interpretation Theory in Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Heidegger and Gadamer Reviews
A useful introduction to hermeneutics. The text itself stumbles by its blatantly secondary nature. What I mean to say is that one would gain a mich greater experience of understanding by reading some texts by Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Heidegger, and Gadamer.The worst parts are the opening and closing sections. Palmer's thought is a piecemeal stitching of earlier thinkers' (especially Gadamer), steeped in logocentrism. His focus in spoken language, despite the fundamentally woven textuality of his (his?) understanding of experience and understanding left me sour to his writing from early on.The final reason this work gets only three stars is that the final section is a rehashing and explaining of what he has written before it. If one has read the sections preceding the final then there is no point in restating, besides filling out the page count. A waste. This does remain an opening for the person interested in hermeneutics, and it is very accessible, though a biy dated. But your time is better spent reading the four thinkers discussed. You will gain a lot more from the endeavour.
I read many selections from this in college, but felt compelled to pick it up recently and reread it. It's a wonderful manifesto of hermeneutical phenomenology. Occasionally, Palmer waxes a bit too poetic, but in general it's a spiriting call-to-arms for the serious phenomenological literary critic, re-challenging the accepted subject-object split still embedded in literary criticism, even today, some 40 years after this book's publication. While I had hoped for more examples of the type of interpretation Palmer expects of his "followers," his overall treatment of the four theorists named in the title, and his manifesto at the end, more than make up for whatever problems I have with his occasionally flamboyant style or deficiency in examples.
مقدّمهای -البته نهچندان ساده- بر علم هرمنوتیک؛ علمِ فهم متن و بررسی روششناختی و هستیشناختیِ خودِ مقولهی «فهم». مؤلّف پس از ریشهشناسیِ لفظی و اصطلاحیِ «هرمنوتیک»، و بیان حدود و تعاریف مختلف آن، به بیان آراءِ هرمنوتیکیِ دیلتای، شلایرماخر و به ویژه هایدگر و گادامر میپردازد و در این امر نسبتاً موفّق است، به خصوص اینکه شرحِ نظراتِ فیلسوفِ سختنویسی چون هایدگر کار آسانی نیست. این کتاب را میتوان به علاقهمندان به تحقیق در فلسفهی قارّهای، پدیدارشناسی، و تفسیر متون ( دینی یا غیر آن ) پیشنهاد کرد
Sesungguhnya Hermeneutik sudah dimulai sejak pemikiran Hermes, Socrates, Plato, Aristoteles ; kemudian dilanjutkan dengan tokoh-tokoh reformasi kristen seperti St. Agustinus, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther dan tokoh-tokoh aktivis kristen yang ingin menginterpretasikan isi alkitab. Sejalan dengan waktu, tokoh-tokoh Hermeneutik dipopulerkan lebih meluas oleh Friedlich Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Heidegger, dan Gadamer dengan berbagai ciri pandangannya masing-masing. Di dalam buku inilah perbedaan teori-teori keempat tokoh Hermeneutik tersebut dibahas dan dikupas.,Sangat bagus dibaca oleh para peminat filsafat dan sastra.
A classic; Palmer does for hermeneutics what Spiegelberg did for phenomenology. Given the paucity in the acknowledgement and understanding of hermeneutic theory relative to its contribution to postmodernism, this is quite a service.
A good introduction to philosophical hermeneutics.
This was not light reading. In principle the structure of the book was logical, giving a chronological overview on teh development of hermeneutics and applying it to literature. However, the sentences were unduly long, and if I thought I had understood the sentence when I started it, I got lost halfway through. Occasionally, I think I managed to glimpse something in the labyrinth of word created by Palmer. I am reading this book for an exam, so I live in the hope that the second reading will make it clearer to me.
A solid introduction to hermeneutics, this text simply surveys the possible definitions of the field given at various times and then surveys four major authors in the field to show its progress from the early 19th c. through the mid 20th. The field has certainly continued on since then, but this volume helps catch you up at least until Gadamer in the 1960's. Very useful introduction to a very dizzying topic that is, for its wide reach into every discipline of humanities (from literary criticism to theology to art history to epistemology and philosophy), a topic of extreme importance.
The book both is a very good introduction to hermeneutics and has a very expansive summary called "Thirty Theses on Interpretation". Cos of these facilities, the book deserves 4 stars at least.
Not my kind of book, but I had to read it for a class so it was good in its field :P
