Languages of publication
The main aim of the article is to demonstrate the elements indispensable to understanding how hermeneutics constitutes a fundamental 'locus' in which the question of 'truth' and the task of 'metaphysics' may be again welcomed, understood and renewed. This task requires presenting historical views of authors who showed the real nature of hermeneutics. Such a historical exposition is composed of elements taken from the works of Heidegger, Gadamer, Ricoeur and Betti. These authors are convinced that 'philosophic hermeneutics' contains in itself an insuppressible veritative intentionality that constitutes its true nature and that cannot be contrary in principle to metaphysical truth. It intends to renovate the fundamental question. All of this, according to G. Mura, is a functional foundation for a 'veritative hermeneutics,' for a hermeneutics of truth. Next, the author presents basic elements of veritative hermeneutics and its connection to history of philosophy. Nowadays, the problem of hermeneutics is a central issue in the process of restoring the relation between philosophy and theology - especially in the area of Biblical exegesis, dogmatic and fundamental theology.
