Hermeneutics: Facts and Interpretation in the Age of Information (editie de buzunar)

Is anything ever not an interpretation?  Does interpretation go all the way down?  Is there such a thing as a pure fact that is interpretation-free? If not, how are we supposed to know what to think and do? These tantalizing questions are tackled by renowned American thinker John D Caputo in this wide-reaching exploration of what the traditional term 'hermeneutics' can mean in a postmodern, twenty-first century world. As a contemporary of Derrida's and longstanding champ..
