To be confronted with a text can lead us to open our own living world, to its expansion and saturation with something new or even with something else, something unpredictable. What then makes a human a human? Can philosophical hermeneutics say anything about that? It can! Language is the real center of a human being… The human is a real, as Aristotle used to say, being who has language (Hans-Georg Gadamer). What makes a human a human is a fact that internal reflection is performed behind his voice. This is the most original topic of philosophical hermeneutics.
