In the shadow of Hegel: Infinite dialogue in Gadamer's hermeneutics

Research in Phenomenology 32 (1):86-102 (2002)
This paper explores the place of Hegel in Gadamer's hermeneutics through an analysis of the idea of "infinite dialogue." It is argued that infinite dialogue cannot be understood as a limited Hegelianism, i.e., as the life of spirit in language that does not reach its end. Rather, infinite dialogue can be understood only by taking the Heideggerian idea of radical finitude seriously. Thus, while infinite dialogue has a speculative element, it remains a dialogue conditioned by the occlusion in temporal becoming. This idea is developed further by contrasting Gadamer's position with that of Blanchot, who also stands under the shadow of Hegel.
