In NDPR, Leslie MacAvoy reviews Michael Bowler and Ingo Farin's Hermeneutical Heidegger.
A number of the essays contain some discussion of Heidegger's work of the early 1920s, but the volume does not include a section devoted to the hermeneutics of this period as such, perhaps because it has received so much attention in recent Heidegger scholarship. Although topics such as the hermeneutics of Being and Time and Heidegger's relation to Gadamer have been much discussed over the years, the aim is to trouble received views, resulting in perspectives that are fresh.
A fourth and perhaps the most controversial sense of the hermeneutic is brought out by those essays that argue for the claim that, contrary to the received view, the hermeneutical does not disappear after the turn but instead shifts to refer to the disclosure or event of being in language. This makes hermeneutics a matter of truth.
