The Hermeneutic Mission of Philosophy in the Age of New Humanism

  • Maria Luísa Portocarrero


It is the aim of this text to understand how the concepts of formation, common sense, judgment and taste, rehabilitated by H.-G. Gadamer, are essential beacons of the human sciences and of Humanism, today so much demanded by some sectors of the harsh sciences, such as medicine. Humanizing services and behaviors is a contemporary complaint that needs conductive categories and of real hermeneutics testimonies. Philosophy must therefore indicate the ways.
