Praise of Theory: Speeches and Essays
Yale University Press, 1. jan. 1998 - 185 strani
This collection of speeches and essays clarifies Gadamer's thoughts on the power of language, the social role and influence of science, and the idea of reason. He argues that the theoretical pursuit of truth is valuable for its own sake, and devalued when pursued explicitly for practical purposes.
