More on understanding in the social sciences

Inquiry 10 (1-4):321-326 (1967)
A central mistake in Rolf Gruner's recent article on understanding in the socia sciences in ferreted out, and consideration of it is used both to analyse Gruner's interpretation of understanding and to sketch a more adequate interpretation. The mistake is in distinguishing meanings and facts. The analysis suggests that Gruner was forced to see understanding both as a special kind of explanation and at the same time as no explanation. The sketch offers a distinction of three senses of ?understanding? ? as identification of a certain kind of subject matter, as explanation of it, and as a subjective feeling consequent upon such explanation
