    The Life of Understanding: A Contemporary Hermeneutics.James Risser - 2012 - Indiana University Press.
    In Gadamer’s hermeneutics, interpretation is inseparable from the broader concern of making one’s way in life. In this book, James Risser builds on this insight about the juxtaposition of human living and the act of understanding by tracing hermeneutics back to the basic experience of philosophy as defined by Plato. For Risser, Plato provides resources for new directions in hermeneutics and new possibilities for "the life of understanding" and "the understanding of life." Risser places Gadamer in dialogue with Plato, with (...)

    On the Threefold Sense of Mimesis in Plato's Republic.James Risser - 2013 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 17 (2):249-256.
    The traditional reading of Plato’s criticism of the poets and painters in Book 10 of the Republic is that they merely imitate. In light of Plato’s own image-making, the critique of imitation requires a more careful examination, especially in regards to painting. This paper argues that it is insufficient to view Plato’s critique of image-making by the painter solely in terms of the image replication that does not consider the eidos. In view of the context of Plato’s argument within Book (...)

    Discourse, Dialectic, and the Art of Weaving.James Risser - 2009 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 13 (2):291-298.
    This paper explores the way in which the art of weaving, as it is initially presented in Plato’s Statesman, serves to configure both the fundamental character ofdiscourse and the limit experience of discourse for Plato. The problem that arises in relation to this configuration pertains to the possible unity of discourse (and with it the acquisition of knowledge). In relation to the hermeneutics of Hans-Georg Gadamer and his reading of Plato, it is argued that the unity of discourse follows “the (...)

    Ethical Hermeneutics, or How the Ubiquity of the Finite Casts the Human in the Shadow of the Dark Side of the Moon.James Risser - 2017 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 22 (1):79-89.
    This paper attempts to define Dennis J. Schmidt’s distinctive contribution to philosophy and to contemporary hermeneutics in particular under the heading of an ethical hermeneutics. The idea of an ethical hermeneutics is considered in relation to four aspects: 1) the element of practice as the constitutive element of ethical hermeneutics; 2) the force of practice: finitude; 3) the idiom as the place of finitude; 4) ethical hermeneutics and the domain of the common. The fourth aspect constitutes the critical engagement with (...)

    Hearing the Other: Communication as Shared Life.James Risser - 2019 - Journal of Applied Hermeneutics 2019.
    In the phenomenological tradition, which took root in the first part of the twentieth century, the issue of intersubjectivity became prominent as a way of characterizing social life. But as seen in the work of Edith Stein, for example, this philosophy of intersubjectivity gives prominence to the subject, and as such it leaves open not only the question of the basic character of social life, but also the hermeneutic problem of understanding the other. The focus of my remarks in this (...)

    Speaking From Silence: On the Intimate Relation Between Silence and Speaking.James Risser - 2019 - Journal of Applied Hermeneutics 2019.
    In understanding the world through language, silence, regarded simply as the absence of speech, appears to be the enemy of understanding. But in fact, it can be shown that silence is always a function of language. As we learn from Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger, and others, the relation between silence and the word of language is a positive one. There are acts of silence that can generate the movement towards meaning in language. The focus of my remarks in this paper will explore (...)

    When Words Fail: On the Power of Language in Human Experience.James Risser - 2019 - Journal of Applied Hermeneutics 2019.
    Beyond the ordinariness of experience in daily life there are times when we encounter an experience for which words seem inadequate to express and communicate the experience. The focus of my remarks for the first paper will explore this situation of the potential limits of language for understanding experience. The question of these limits depends on an analysis of just what takes place in experience and language. Drawing on Hans-Georg Gadamer’s hermeneutic theory for an answer to the question, I will (...)

    On Freedom in Another Sense.James Risser - 2012 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 17 (1):99-109.
    This paper assesses the philosophical project of Charles Scott, beginning with his first book, Boundaries in Mind, and including his most recent work on “Bor­dered Americans.” The interpretive focus for the assessment concentrates on what Scott early on characterizes as boundary awareness: the appearing of difference in appearance. In this context, it is argued that what is fundamentally at issue in Scott’s philosophy is a sense of freedom other than that which is associated with subjectivity and its presumed autonomy.

    The Demand of Freedom in Kant's Critique of Judgment.James Risser - 2009 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 1 (1):89-104.
    This paper examines the issue of the unity of the critical philosophy in Kant’s Critique of Judgment through a careful consideration of the actual bridge that joins nature and freedom. Kant argues that this bridge is made under the demand for the furtherance of life, and is accordingly to be equated with the demand of freedom. This article specifically focuses on this demand that is, in effect, carried out by the principle of purposiveness. It is argued that this demand is (...)

    This book is a focused study of the specific problem in aesthetics of literature's relation to truth. The authors's treatment of the problem is both expansive and highly nuanced, undoubtedly a result not only of the co-authoring of the book, which by all indications is a true collaborative effort, but also of the fact that the book is the product of a decade of work on the problem. The division of labor for the book, though, is obvious in the treatment (...)

    In the Shadow of Hegel: Infinite Dialogue in Gadamer's Hermeneutics.James Risser - 2002 - Research in Phenomenology 32 (1):86-102.
    This paper explores the place of Hegel in Gadamer's hermeneutics through an analysis of the idea of "infinite dialogue." It is argued that infinite dialogue cannot be understood as a limited Hegelianism, i.e., as the life of spirit in language that does not reach its end. Rather, infinite dialogue can be understood only by taking the Heideggerian idea of radical finitude seriously. Thus, while infinite dialogue has a speculative element, it remains a dialogue conditioned by the occlusion in temporal becoming. (...)
