Positions during the war[edit]

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[edit]

I've created a Truth and Method stub, since I was sick of seeing the red link! It's short and stubby at the moment, but I'm sure it'll grow. Mostlyharmless (talk) 01:06, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Points for expansion[edit]

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?[edit]

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"[edit]

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. (talk) 10:44, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Gadamer's work[edit]

Last December, someone added a long and perhaps insightful essay on Gadamer's work, which, however, is not even close to wikipedia style. Since it is not sourced, it is hard to salvage it by turning it into wikipedia style. The easiest solution would be to simply remove the text, but perhaps some of it can be reworked into the rest of the article. I will try this, if there are no better ideas or the original author doesn't come forward. Wikikrax (talk) 11:25, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

I removed the lengthy essay and reorganized works into two sections. Still needs a lot of work. Wikikrax (talk) 11:52, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Heidegger and Nazism[edit]

The fourth paragraph in the section on Gadamer's Life begins:

"Gadamer habilitated in 1929 and spent most of the early 1930s lecturing in Marburg. Unlike Heidegger, who had been a fervent supporter of the Nazis, Gadamer was silent on Nazism, and he was not politically active during the Third Reich."

Describing Heidegger as a fervent supporter of the Nazis seems to be an overstatement per Martin Heidegger and Nazism. I propose to change this paragraph to read:

"Gadamer habilitated in 1929 and spent most of the early 1930s lecturing in Marburg. Unlike Heidegger, who joined the Nazi Party in May 1933 and continued his membership until the party was dissolved following World War II, Gadamer was silent on Nazism, and he was not politically active during the Third Reich."

Any thoughts about, or issues with, the change? TheDucksNuts (talk) 03:39, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Help clarify or Delete[edit]

Imamichi(1922-2012) alleged that Heidegger (1889 – 1976) had taken his concept of Dasein out of Okakura Kakuzo(1862 – 1913)'s concept of das in-der-Welt-sein (to be in the being of the world) expressed in The Book of Tea, which Imamichi's teacher had offered to Heidegger in 1919, after having followed lessons with him the year before

Who is Imamichi's teacher? In 1918 Heidegger was drafted and he was doing paperwork for the military. Since 1916 he has been a privatdozent. The ref by Fagot-Largeault seems rather vague (the link is dead but there are notes or the course). (talk) 20:46, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
