Interpretative Methods: Hermeneutics for the Humanities and Social Sciences
Advanced Training

This workshop consists of three sessions which investigate a series of methods for the interpretation of texts in the human and social sciences. By building on the philosophical foundations of interpretative methods, as well as practicing these methods, the sessions will give researchers the intellectual background and skills to interpret texts in various forms. This session will focus on phenomenology: What are the philosophical reasons behind the rise of interpretive methods? By engaging with the works of Hume and Hegel, this introduction session sets out the epistemological problem at the source of interpretive methods: the question of how human beings are to know the outside world at all if they only have access to it through the way it appears to us (the phenomena).
