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 hermeneutics: How are we to interpret human action, particularly human action that is given to us in textual format? Hermeneutics, as the science of interpretation provides concrete methods for the study of texts and their authors, and provides answers for the philosophical question around these methods. By reading Gadamer on two issues: the hermeneutic cycle and the problem of application, this second session provides a philosophical and practical introduction to the method of hermeneutics.
