    Meaning and Spirit in Betti’s Hermeneutics.Mirela Oliva - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (1).
    Betti’s account of meaning is spiritual. Betti follows in Hegel’s footsteps and explores the objectivations of the spirit, which he calls representative forms. The interpretation of these forms must capture their meaning from inside and refrain from attributing them an extraneous meaning. Betti invokes, in this sense, the classic hermeneutic canon Sensus non est inferendus, sed efferendus. Interpretation is however not a mere transmission of content from the text to the interpreter but a spiritual union between the interpreter and the (...)

    A Metaciência Hermenêutica de Emilio Betti Na Interpretação Jurídica Brasileira: Uma Breve Reflexão Sobre a Ação Direta de Inconstitucionalidade N. 4903/2013.Ana Paula da Silva Sotero & Ricardo Maurício Freire Soares - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (1).
    The present study aims to analyze the contributions of hermeneutic metascience of the jurist Emilio Betti to the Brazilian legal interpretation, based on the decision of the Supreme Federal Court of Direct Action of Unconstitutionality No. 4903/2013. Therefore, the theoretical incursion will use the bases and conceptual premises of Emilio Betti to understand the forms and methodologies for the application of hermeneutics, discussing the objectivity of the act of interpreting in the triadic character of the author to achieve the understanding (...)

    Perpetual Need for Human Sciences.Vinicio Busacchi - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Today’s crisis of the human and social sciences is there for all to see. This is a complex problem resulting from an equally complex dynamism that implies the spirit of the times, the interests and values orientations which prevail today. We live in an era of materialism, an era of new paganism that institutionalizes the superiority of the natural sciences and naturalizing paradigms. This article tries to show how a certain philosophical approach can contribute, on the on hand, to the (...)

    Philosophy Today.H. C. - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    In an era dominated by information and communication technologies, when science continues to amaze us with its discoveries and technological applications, and when social media are controlling part of our lives and social relationships, does philosophy still make sense? Is humanistic knowledge still necessary today as an indispensable part of our human world?

    On the Utility of Spinoza’s Philosophy.Luis Rodríguez Camarero - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    After some reflections about the utility and singularity of philosophy, it is shown that the main utility of philosophy, following Spinoza, would be the perfection of human nature, with the aid of our understanding. Lastly, a synthesis is made of the path followed by Spinoza in his Ethica in the direction of this perfection.

    From Art-Aesthetics Coupling to the Aestheticfagia of Art.Maria Gabriela Castro - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    The theory that we present in this article, and which we have called Aestheticophagy of Art, is a result of our reflection about the relationship between art and aesthetics, and the dynamics that each one of the terms has in the philosophical reflection of Aesthetics. If we can see artworks with different characteristics over the centuries, the way that we see it today, implies its degeneration as art, and its overlapping as an aesthetic object which provokes an aesthetic emotion, where (...)

    Educational Dimension of Knowledge and Philosophy.Ángel González Fernández - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Descartes used to speak of epistemic precariousness in philosophy. Yet, such precariousness significantly highlights philosophy's educational dimension. This very dimension, in turn, is true of all knowledge to varying degrees, as well as of different art forms. Nothing compares to exposing students to the plurality and diversity of philosophies, in order to distance them from dogmatic attitudes and from discriminatory and unsympathetic positions, while encouraging a more critical, open-minded and relentless quest for truth. Whereas the educational component is somewhat secondary (...)

    E-Humanities: An Uncertain Dialogue Among Nussbaum, Camps and Braidotti.Martín González Fernández - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    A dialogue between three contemporary philosophers is fictionalized on the crisis of the Humanities and the birth of a new epistemological paradigm: Martha Nussbaum from an American liberal position, Victoria Camps from an European social democratic position and Rosi Braidotti from a global post-Humanism perspective. It serves as introduction to the text included in this monograph: “Cuando las humanidades se hacen digitales: filosofía y algoritmo ” by Mª de Lourdes Pérez González.

    From Perspectivism and Hermeneutics to Post-Truth.María Martín Gómez - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    The article analyzes one of the most current problems in philosophy, the emergence of the notion of post-truth, and investigates its relationship with philosophical currents as perspectivism, relativism, hermeneutics and the new realism. All this, from the hypothesis that an incorrect interpretation of the notion of “points of view” may have been the reason for the origin of the post-truth.

    Philosophy and Hermeneutics.José Mª. García Gómez-Heras - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Two ways of understanding bioethics exist. One, with a hermeneutic methodology, is interested in the living subjectivity of the sick person as prioritized by the dialogue between doctor and patient, and the other, which is based on facts and information at the time of making decisions.

    When Humanities Become Digital.Mª de Lourdes Pérez González - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Based on the concept of the cyberpunk librarian, we attempt to offer a cartography of the digital humanities in an attempt to move towards the defense of information as a public good in which access to it is a priority. In this paper, we consider that the Digital Humanities, beyond possible methodological, ontological and epistemological implications; we must identify all possible ethical, aesthetic and political issues that these humanities may contain.

    Philosophy and Peace.Oscar Tulio Lizcano González - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    This text seeks to approximate the Colombian armed conflict. Without historical, chronological or thematic tracking, it is sought to emphasize the absence of philosophy to think about peace in the Colombian context. To do this, we will first make a brief presentation of the Ricoeurian method known as hermeneutics of the symbol, in order to use this methodology in the combined case. Secondly, we will address what we have called The Symbolic of Evil in Colombia. There we will display two (...)

    The Hermeneutic Mission of Philosophy in the Age of New Humanism.Maria Luísa Portocarrero - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    It is the aim of this text to understand how the concepts of formation, common sense, judgment and taste, rehabilitated by H.-G. Gadamer, are essential beacons of the human sciences and of Humanism, today so much demanded by some sectors of the harsh sciences, such as medicine. Humanizing services and behaviors is a contemporary complaint that needs conductive categories and of real hermeneutics testimonies. Philosophy must therefore indicate the ways.

    The “Two Cultures” and Philosophy.Acílio da Silva Estanqueiro Rocha - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    In a Symposium on “Philosophy today: the need for Humanities in future world building”, it is difficult not to think about C. P. Snow’s famous conference on the “Two Cultures”, and the controversy it originated over more than six decades. To the diagnoses then assessed, we intend to oppose other works, either in the field of philosophy with the work of Bachelard, or with other names that are both distinguished themselves in the scientific field and in the arts and humanities (...)

    Hermeneutics of the Patient's Discourse.Carlos Zamarrón Sanz - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Illness episodes are events in the life of patients, which stand out in their narratives. Being ill is to be interpreted as ill. In this hermeneutical process, the analysing of the story is decisive. The objective of our study has been to analyse the clinical interviews of patients with respiratory diseases. Through qualitative methodology, codes related to the experience of the disease were created. Subsequently, the textual content linked to the codes was discussed considering the contemporary hermeneutical philosophy. Text coding (...)

    Philosophy and Teaching.Luís García Soto - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    This text deals with the teaching of philosophy, trying to highlight its value in secondary education, for the development of personal autonomy and the global formation of a democratic citizenship. The starting point is the experience of teaching philosophy to future secondary education philosophy teachers, based on a conception of philosophy formulated by the Italian philosopher G. Vattimo and linked to the so-called right to philosophy formulated by the French philosopher J. Derrida. From this point of view, the form and (...)

    Who We Are: A Response From Paul Ricoeur’s Hermeneutics.Walter Guillén Soto - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    This article is about Paul Ricoeur’s insights in relation to the search of the orientation and perspectives about who we are. First, it gives some features about the philosopher’s reflexive trait where is highlighted the presence of the topic in regards of the individual endeavors that constitute each person as the master of his/her own actions and not an object of any circumstance. Then, it reviews the person’s phenomenological portrait according to the perspectives in a time of reasoning in which (...)

    Language and Languages in Contemporary Philosophy.Rocío Carolo Tosar - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Language, one of the central themes of 20th-century philosophy, will be addressed by Galician thinker Ramón Piñeiro in several of his writings. This author, who moves in an atmosphere where existentialism reigned, presents us with a conception of language very close to that of other European authors, especially Heidegger.

    Philosophy and Literature in Japanese Thought.Alba Iglesias Varela - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Philosophy and literature coexist in the works of Mishima Yukio and, therefore, the objective of this small article is to analyze the work of the Japanese writer from a philosophical point of view. Thus, we will focus on the tetralogy The Sea of Fertility, the last work written by this author. There are many philosophical aspects that we can find in these four novels, from influences of Western philosophy to multiple aspects of Eastern traditions. Although, we will focus only on (...)

    This article analyses the basic concepts of philosophy in order to argue that it is a field of knowledge that can be ascribed neither to science nor to the humanities. In ancient times, philosophy aimed at being a science in the full sense of the word, a field of knowledge in itself, while in modern times it was understood as a weak field of study, one of the humanities, although it was not long before it returned to aiming at being (...)

    Between 'Demand' and 'Effort'.Jesús Ríos Vicente - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    In this work, I propose to pose a problem, both unavoidable and complex, such as that of education and the hermeneutical principles that should inform it, as a "path" to a dignified existence. I start from "my convictions", with the help of a set of texts by classical philosophers who have proposed the search for wisdom as a means to achieve a dignified life through education. All these texts, and their conjugation, lead me to ask myself essential questions about education: (...)

    History of Philosophy and the Problem of Its Interpretation.Marcelino Agís Villaverde - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 5 (S1).
    Any researcher of philosophy who wants to complete the map of a hypothetical “Anatomy of Thinking” would not feel satisfied only with the detailed study of the discursive elements that we use as the basis of thought. It is also essential to know how the reception and interpretation of philosophical ideas that have traveled within written works have been intertwined throughout history and, in some exceptional cases, in the evanescent presence of orality, always collected by others. In this work I (...)

    The Shimmer is Inside Really”. D. H. Lawrence’s Resurrection Myth and Wilfred’s Bion’s Transformations in “O.Emily Griffiths - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 4 (2).
    I analyse D. H. Lawrence’s hostility to the application of Freudian theory to literature in his critical writings alongside the aesthetic theories he develops in his novels Sons and Lovers, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and The Man Who Died which are centred around the Christian mystery of the resurrection. Lawrence develops a life-affirming, reader-response theory of art with parallels to psychoanalysis and Christian theology. Employing the psychoanalytic theories of Melanie Klein and Wilfred Bion, specifically Klein’s writings on projective identification, the paranoid-schizoid (...)

  26. The Significance of Paul Ricoeur's Narrative Theory and Hermeneutics for Understanding Carl Jung's Red Book.Sanja Ivic - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 4 (2):163-182.
    Hermeneutics is a significant dimension of C.G. Jung’s analytical psychology, although Jung did not develop a consistent hermeneutic method, and this aspect of his work has not yet been sufficiently explored. This paper examines the relevance of Paul Ricoeur’s hermeneutics and narrative theory for the interpretation of Carl Jung’s Red Book, which can be perceived as a narrative experiment. Ricoeur focuses on the narrative character of human experience. Paul Ricoeur’s ideas of narrative and plot are significant for exploring Jung’s inner (...)

    Editors' Introduction.Giuseppe Martini & Ignacio Iglesias Colillas - 2021 - Critical Hermeneutics 4 (2).
    An overview of the relationship between psychoanalysis and hermeneutics. We would like to open this introduction by confessing an initial ambition that we now see with a more critical eye. The idea that initially prompted the construction of this issue of Critical Hermeneutics was to rethink in a systematic way the relationship between these two disciplines that have constantly but ambivalently attracted each other, perhaps since the birth of the younger one: psychoanalysis. However, we realised that the goal of a (...)
