A CONTRIBUTION TO LOGICAL HERMENEUTICS
Languages of publication
The author attempts to present a new version of logical hermeneutics, which is based on Boguslaw Wolniewicz's theory. Logical hermeneutics is a instrument for understanding and interpreting systems, which aspire to be true or false. He shows strong and weak points of Wolniewicz's logical hermeneutics and postulates some reforms, which are necessary for its practical implementation. Firstly, in contrast to Wolniewicz, the author argues that logical and classical hermeneutics complement one another and that the perspective of classical hermeneutics is essential in the process of understanding and interpreting philosophical texts. Secondly, he shows negative consequences of using classical logic in logical hermeneutics and the usefulness of replacing the classical relation of consequence with an nonmonotonic and paraconsistent one. Thirdly, one of the most important and difficult things is to distinguish a set of propositions, which are logically isolated from the main part of interpreting philosophical system. And finally, the author tries to find out how interpretations of interpreting system can be compared, because Wolniewicz doesn't give the efficient criterions for better interpretation.
