Review of Metaphysics 44 (4):707 - 728 (1991)

IN THE FOLLOWING PAGES, I shall examine two questions. Is there an anticipation of the understanding that constitutes the act of interpretation? If so, does that anticipatory understanding possess a structure of the sort that stands to the act of interpretation as the ontological ground is held to stand to the ontic or factual consequences of that ground? These questions together make up the problem of the hermeneutical circle.
