This essay interprets O. F. Bollnow′s hermeneutic of life from an intercultural point of view. It points out that Bollnow was unsatisfied with the eurocentrism involved in the classical idealistic concept of reason and developed a hermeneutical approach, which came very close to the tradition of Zen Buddhism. It has the form of a “meditative” philosophy based on the concept of “Gelassenheit” as a door to a new and productive relationship with the Being in both practical and theoretical life
