Hermenéutica o hermética. Oposición y conjunción de dos tradiciones interpretativas

By Carmen Fernández Galán and Gonzalo Lizardo Méndez


Reading the world like a book or reading a book like a world are two ways of interpretation that permit the tracing of hermeneutic traditions. In an attempt to achieve the conjuctio oppositorum, we explore the tension between hermetics and hermeneutics that forks in the road of science and literature, whose borders are blurred. The ways of revealing the truth are multiple: analogy, metaphor, archetypes and symbols imply routes of intertextuality for the reader, who in turn completes the interpretation in his own horizon of expectations. In the conjunction, and not in the opposition, between hermeneutics and hermetics, it will be possible to open new spaces for the living and creative interpretation of life and texts
