Gadamer–Derrida debate

The Gadamer–Derrida debate concerns the issue of the containment of otherness in Gadamer's hermeneutics and it began with an encounter between Hans-Georg Gadamer and Jacques Derrida in April 1981 in a Sorbonne conference in Paris on "Text and Interpretation".[1] Before this debate, there had not been any confrontation or dialogue between hermeneutics in Germany and post-structuralism in France.[2][3][4]
