TheMoreThis volume explores some of the more important of Hans-Georg Gadamers extensive writings on art and literature. The principal text included is The Relevance of the Beautiful, Gadamers most sustained treatment of philosophical aesthetics.

The eleven other essays focus particularly on the challenge issued by modern painting and literature to our customary ideas of art, and in turn revitalize our understanding of it. Gadamer demonstrates the continuing importance of such concepts as imitation, truth, symbol, and play for our appreciation of contemporary art, and thereby establishes its continuity with the Western tradition.

The essays here are not technical and are readily accessible to the beginning student and the general reader. The collection as a whole serves to illustrate the practice of hermeneutics and to introduce Gadamers thought. Robert Bernasconi provides an introduction clarifying the central aims of the essays and their relations to Gadamers major work, Truth and Method, and to the philosophy of art since Kant. A bibliography of Gadamers writings available in English is also included.
