Abstract

Heidegger's discussion of the hermeneutic circle in "Being and Time" constitutes one of the more significant contemporary formulations of this key hermeneutical concept. In examining his formulation and appropriation of the circle, I trace the extent to which the circle represents not only a suggestive metaphor, but an important constitutive analysis in the disclosure of the fundamentally ontological and circular structure of understanding. As such, I argue that the hermeneutic circle functions as exemplar both for the account of hermeneutical understanding and for Heidegger's larger project, helping to encode the development of his thought.
