gadamer truth and methodgadamerMcGann on ‘Truth and Method; or Humanities Scholarship as a Science of mcgann-jeromeExceptions’

14 May 2015, 17:00 – 18:30, Mill Lane Lecture Theatres, Cambridge

Professor Jerome McGann (University of Virginia) will give a Cambrdge Centre for Research in Arts, Social Science and Humanities (CRASSH ) public lecture

‘As my title suggests, Hans-George Gadamer’s dialectic of enlightenment is my point of reference. I mean to recover and revise Gadamer’s thought by shifting it from a philosophical to a philological perspective. From the living example of certain individuals, I propose a model of humanist enquiry that seems to me worth preserving and emulating, particularly now when educational policy is reinvesting so heavily in a technical expertise offered by the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).’
