A View Beyond the Border

(Original title: The barbarity of interpretation)
Filozofia, 65 (2010), 5, 477-484.

The barbarian of interpretation, in his barbarity, cannot be omitted from the line of ‘the new barbarians’. In the following, I will underline not only the threatening side of the barbarian of interpretation, but also the fact that the entirety of modern hermeneutics appeared in order to offer a certain protection from ‘the invasion’ of these strange barbarians… Read more
