Summary/Abstract: In day-to-day discourse, human beings engage in dialogue. Problems arise in the interpretation of language; according to Gadamer, these problems are the basis of hermeneutics (Gadamer 1989: 455). In Truth and Method, Gadamer seeks to provide a link between culture and the understanding of the interpretation of language. Most importantly, Gadamer is concerned with what understanding the “others” have of the information they receive or read and how they make sense of this information, taking into consideration the cultural implications.
