Summary/Abstract: The article presents certain considerations regarding the relation between hermeneutical and transcendental philosophy, beginning with a short discussion on the essence of transcendentalism. In its second part, the article describes Hermeneutical Philosophy as a new, post-metaphysical First Philosophy; the author shows that H.-G. Gadamer, the classical thinker in this current, likewise understood his hermeneutics as a question regarding the condition of possibility (of understanding). His solution – that prejudices are a historical a priori – proves an important change has come about in contemporary philosophy. It may be called a hermeneutical turn and be seen as a continuation of the linguistic turn of the 1960s, and it has been achieved through a critical synthesis of modern phenomenology and language analysis, based on the fundamental interpretativity of human being in the world. R. Rorty appears as an important ally in the accomplishment of this turn.
