Truth Is More Than Reality. Gadamer’s Transformational Concept of Truth

Truth Is More Than Reality.

Gadamer’s Transformational Concept of Truth Gaetano Chiurazzi University of Torino, Italy Abstract In this paper I try to establish a relation between some fundamental concepts of Gadamerian philosophy—namely, the concepts of play, of transmutation into form, and of increase in being— and the concept of truth. The concept of play allows one to conceive the extra-methodical char- acter of truth as an objectivity radically different from that of science: the objectivity of what happens and is thus unrepeatable, absolutely independent of any methodical mastery; the con- cept of transmutation into form is a theorization of the effectual character of truth; the concept of increase in being shows its nonredundant character, i.e., the idea that truth is more than real- ity. Truth is eventually conceived as a “transformational concept,” in which ontology, knowledge, and ethics are indissolubly interconnected.
