Philosophical Hermeneutics

Diego Fernando Barragan Giraldo
Pages 121-130

Memory, Utopia, Self-Understanding and Narration
Hermeneutic Possibilities to Think Again Philosophy Today

Based on the philosophic hermeneutics, this text wants to open horizons of meaning around the dialogue between social sciences and philosophy, from what I have called in this work hermeneutic subjectivity. In the first part, there is an approximation to Heidegger concept of dasein, as an antithesis of the modern subject. Then, based on memory, utopia, self-understanding and narration, it presents a theoretical contribution to understand how hermeneutic subjectivity is constituted. Finally, it makes an invitation to a necessary dialogue between social sciences and philosophy.
