As David Vessey announced at the conference last week, we are starting an on-line Gadamer reading group this winter. The first meeting will be Sunday December 13th from 2:00-4:00 ET. We will be discussing “The Universality of the Hermeneutical Problem,” a lecture given in 1980 at The University of Pretoria and published in Lectures on Philosophical Hermeneutics, Universiteit van Pretoria, 1982. (Note that this is not the essay with the same title that is published in Philosophical Hermeneutics).

If you would like to participate, please contact David Vessey ( for the Zoom link and a copy of the reading.
