This book got my excited about rhetoric again. There's potential, once more, for me to think about the power of interpretation in critical pedagogy. How we "read the world", that is, is critical.

That said, I didn't actually feel as thought Gallagher gave a fair shake to critical / radical hermeneutics. But the book as a whole provided a nice overview to essential viewpoints.

I wanted to read more about the hermeneutics of suspicion and trust and most of the sources I found pointed to this book, which turned out to be the most insightful book in philosophy or educational theory I've read in years. Gallagher's heuristic of four hermeneutical traditions (conservative, moderate, critical and radical) is so lucid and helpful, I wish I'd known about it when it was first published in 1992!
