Positions during the war
This article says: He did not receive a paid position during the Nazi years and never entered the Party; only towards the end of the War did he receive an appointment at Leipzig.
The article on Richard Kroner, though, says that Gadamer briefly replaced Kroner at the university of Kiel when Kroner was dismissed in 1934. So one of these seems like it's wrong. --Delirium 18:35, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
Truth and Method
Points for expansion
The sidebar which contains Gadamers 'Notable Ideas' lists 'Practical Philosophy', Hermeneutics, and the ideas that "All products of a tradition stand within that tradition" and "Language as unity of the infinite and finite", of these, hermeneutics is discussed very briefly in the article, how Gadamer contributed to 'Practical Philosophy' is not discussed, nor are the two epigrams explained, their place in G's work explored, or their sources referenced. Obviously this is a 'start class' article, so much remains to be done, I'd be really interested to see how these areas can be expanded. Riversider (talk) 09:58, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Heidegger did what?
The current version has "Gadamer's essay on Celan (entitled "Who Am I and Who Are You?") has been considered by many—including Heidegger and Gadamer himself". Interesting.--Andrew Lancaster (talk) 19:52, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
- On reflection I should be more clear. I am wondering if this works chronologically. I guess it is possible.--Andrew Lancaster (talk) 08:58, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
"was anti-Nazi... did not receive a paid position during the Nazi years"
This is simply false. Look at the German version of the same page. On Nov. 11th, 1933 he signed the "declaration of loyalty to Adolf Hitler". In 1937 he received a professorship in Marburg. In 1939 he became a full professor and director of an institute in Leipzig. During the war he was involved in the the "Humanities' contribution to the war effort" project. Someone needs to revise the info on this page. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:44, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
