The truth in times of crisis

31 Jan

The new hermeneutic consciousness, the chance to establish dialogue between concepts, make man more vulnerable to a crisis of thought, is more orthodox and predisposition to an intolerance, a truth of the Monarchy of Fear how to define Martha Nussbaum in his new book , favorite us in dictatorships and extremes.
But what is this new consciousness? defines Hans Georg-Gadamer thus: “Hermeneutic consciousness, which must be awakened and kept awake, recognize that in the age of the philosophy of science, the claim of superiority has something chimerical and unreal about it.” (Gadamer, 1975)
And he inclines: “But the will of man who is farther than ever, more than the former sensation, a point of becoming a utopian or eschatological sensation, a hermeneutic consciousness of finding with this will something true of the recording: which is still and never more real. ” (Gadamer, 1975)
That is, an a-lethe, not forgetting. The focus of subjectivity in the face of objectivity is a true dark window: “The focus of subjectivity is a brilliant upheaval.” (Gadamer, 1975).
Self-consciousness is Individual case is only a closed movement of historical life, remembering that self-consciousness is the great Hegelian construct in relation to the historical rule. What happens to history is that we put them in more than the crisis of idealistic and scientific thought, or the neo-positivist methods are there, phronesis.
For Gadamer, Phronesis, the tailary practice, emerging between ethos and the logos, directed for higher and one third year to excluded between the I and us.
Gadamer says: “Understanding is not something that tries to intercept what one wants to say when one asks oneself about what is happening?”  (Gadamer, 1975), in of the common horizons and reorganizes the discourse.
This is very difficult today, but not impossible, if there is a minimum of trust between two discourses, but positive science, dogmatism, fundamentalism and other isms do not admit this, are entrenched in their “self-consciousness” arrogating practical (it is empirical in general) or collective (closed circles).
