    Made for each other: The interdependence of deconstruction and philosophical hermeneutics.Stephen M. Feldman - 2000 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 26 (1):51-70.

Metamodernism, as defined, is opposed to both modernism and radical forms of postmodernism. Within metamodernism, a political conundrum provides the key clue for understanding the relations among Gadamer, Habermas, and Derrida as well as for elaborating the contours of the paradigm. Specifically, the political implications of the three philosophies are intransitive: they seem to shift around rather (...)
