What is it about?
Davey’s book is an important addition to Gadamer scholarship. Those interested in hermeneutical aesthetics will ﬁnd his study particularly delightful. Not only does he accomplish the note-worthy task of lucidly explaining the key moments of Gadamer’s hermeneutical aesthetics, but he also makes a compelling case for applying a Gadamerian ‘poetics’ of aesthetic experience to our understanding of interdisciplinary study, and in so doing urges us to re-evaluate the social and cultural signiﬁcance of the humanities.
