Hans-George Gadamer and the Old Testament
Some aspects of Gadamerís hermeneutics are discussed below: his view on method, the finiteness of being human, the value of prejudices and so forth.

Whoever struggles with him also gains insight into the hermeneutical perspectives of the twentieth century.
