1. Stamboulie, Manal. Social Norms and Social Discourse A Critique of Moral Conservatism.

Degree: MA, 1987, McMaster University

The emphasis of this work ls on the common theme found in the three recent works of Stuart Hampshire (Morality and Conflict), Alasdair Macintyre (After Virtue) and Michael Walzer (Spheres of Justice). I call this theme "moral conservatism". While I believe that the "moral conservatives" are correct in their attempt to establish morality within society rather than in abstraction, their method of generating moral rules through social discourse seems to conflict with their own belief in certain vague notions of justice and equality. on close examination the method of the moral conservatives appears to be hermeneutic in that it involves the re-establishment of appeals to tradition and authority within the context of discourse. Given this hermeneutic element I have found that Habermas 's critique of hermeneutics can also be applied to their methodology. The result is a solution to the initial conflict. Habermas's analysis of universal pragmatics and the ideal speech situation provide a means of introducing constraints on the outcome of social discourse about norms. These constraints, because they are inherent in all social discourse, are universal. Nevertheless, they are not abstract in that they do not derive from an appeal to pure reason; rather, they are inherent in social discourse itself. This modification of the moral conservatives' approach indicates the possibility of combining the concreteness of historical relativism with a universal element usually found in a historical and indeed antihistorical ethical theories.

2. Rodrigues, Marcelo Daniel. Uma defesa do método histórico-crítico à luz do debate entre E. D. Hirsch E H.-G. Gadamer.

Degree: 2017, Escola Superior de Teologica

88 p.

This paper defends the historical-critical method from the perspective of the philosophical hermeneutics of E. D. Hirsch Jr., which defends the intentionality of the author as being the determinant of the meaning of a text, which is contrary to post-modernity, being influenced by various post-modern philosophers such as Hans-Georg Gadamer, who focused attention on the legal, philological and theological hermeneutics in the perspective of the reader. The hermeneutics based on the Gadamer concepts of tradition, almost-repetition and fusion of horizons, opens margins for relativism, since, according to the post-modernity hermeneutics, the intentionality of the author is impossible to be found, and thus, the important thing is the relation of text-reader, or in other words, the semantic autonomy of the texts and the pre-conceptions of the interpreter. Hirsch disagrees and questions the presuppositions of the hermeneutic philosophy of Gadamer, demonstrating, based on the phenomenology of Husserl, that it is possible to seek the intentionality of the author through the duplication of the conscience: that of the author him or her-self and that of the reconstitution of the intentionality of the author. Thus, separating the pre-conceptions themselves from the reconstitution of the intentionality of the author, it is possible to seek this intentionality based on the uncovering of the literary genre, in which the interpreter gathers the necessary information for seeking the author’s intentionality. Besides this, he separates, contrary to Gadamer, the concepts of meaning, meant by the author, from the significance, the relevance of the comprehension of the meaning of the text for the interpreter. Finally, from probabilistic arguments, it is possible to identify the interpretative comprehension which comes from or is close to the author’s intentionality expressed in the text, that is, the verbal meaning. Since Hirsch questions the hermeneutical perspective which focuses on the reader and not on the author, the interpretative theory of Hirsch is used to defend diachronic analysis, which is the base of the historical-critical method in detriment of the post-modern biblical hermeneutics, which favor synchronic analysis, focusing on the text itself and its interaction with the reader, as well of the hermeneutics which do not disregard diachronic analysis but still sustain synchronic analysis.

A hermenêutica, baseada nos conceitos gadamerianos de tradição, quase-repetição e fusão de horizontes abriu margens para o relativismo, já que, segundo a pós-modernidade hermenêutica, a intencionalidade do autor é impossível…
