Truth and Method/I.1.1B The guiding concepts of humanism
Gadamer argues that history and culture inform arguments and he exemplifies this with a clear grasp of the relevant scholarship. It is hard to appreciate the lines of argument he takes without also having attained an adequate appreciation for the concepts he treats with, and their authors' wider contributions. For example, Gadamer has to deal with three of Kant's works before he can advance his own in this and later sections (the following is taken from Wikipedia's Immanuel Kant page):
- The Critique of Pure Reason in 1781 (second ed. 1787) (Kritik der reinen Vernunft)
- On ethics in 1788, the Critique of Practical Reason (Kritik der praktischen Vernunft)
- On aesthetics (largely), in 1790, the Critique of Judgment (Kritik der Urteilskraft)
