Review of Metaphysics 46 (3):612-614 (1993)

Sixty years after its first publication in 1931, Robert Wallace presents us with the first English translation of Hans-Georg Gadamer's habilitation, a work that has appeared in several German editions. In 1968 it was first republished "unaltered", under the same title, with four appended essays. This expanded edition was reprinted in 1982. The habilitation appears again in volume 5 of Gadamer's Gesammelte Werke: Griechische Philosophie I. Wallace's English translation follows this most recent published version, which differs from the earlier versions only in a few additional footnotes or added remarks in the footnotes, most of which refer us to later work by Gadamer relevant to the material. It follows the Collected Works as well in providing the Preface to the first edition and excerpts from prefaces to the second edition and its reprinting.
