- n. Plural form of hermeneutician.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I think one of the things that really interested me about your approach was that you guys thought about game formalisms very clearly and early in the process score one for the ludologists over the hermeneuticians, I guess--but also maybe that you were quick to pare down some of the possible design pathways forward so that some of the blue-sky thinking one might indulge didn't happen.
Trying, as the earlier hermeneuticians did, to locate the (scientific) value of the humanities in their capacity for objective reconstruction is bound to be a wasted effort.
It is precisely the idea of a critical turn in hermeneutics combined with the focus on the individuality of language-use that made Schleiermacher such an important figure for the next generation of hermeneuticians, concerned as they were with the methodology of the human sciences, or, as they understood it, with the critique, in the Kantian meaning of the term, of historical reason.
