Gadamer: Ein philosophisches Porträt . Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2009. 324 pp. Despite Hans-Georg Gadamer’s death in 2002, the arguments about his career and philosophical hermeneutics continue unabated. Some, for example Nicholas Davey in his 2006 book Unquiet Understanding: Gadamer’s Philo- sophical Hermeneutics , believe that Gadamer’s “philosophical articulation . . . is in some respects not as strong as it might be” (xi–xii).

Others, such as Santiago Zabala in The Remains of Being: Hermeneutic Ontology after Metaphysics (2009), place Gadamer in the company of other philosophers following Heidegger’s lead and investigating “the remains of Being in their work” (xv).
