Subject: HAB: Hermeneutik und Ideologiekritik
Date: Thu, 20 Apr 2000 11:41:32 -0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)

Maybe someone who has Hermeneutik und Ideologiekritik (Frankfurt 1971) handy 
can help me.  In Habermas's essay "Der Universalitatsanspruch der Hermeneutik 
pgs 138-139, McCarthy translates one particular passage as "The theoretical 
assumptions on which the depth-hermeneutic analysis of language tacitly rests 
can be developed from three points of view..." (McCarthy 1978: 197).  However, 
in Kurt Mueller-Vollmer's anthology, The Hermeneutics Reader (1994), the same 
sentence is translated as "The theoretical hypotheses which are tacitly 
presupposed by depth-hermeneutical analysis of language may be seen as falling 
into three different groups: ..." (305).

I'm assuming that the difference between theoretical hypotheses and theoretical 
assumptions are two very different things.  I'm quoting the passage in an essay 
I'm writing and would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right 
direction.  If the German is handy (I don't have immediate access to the text), 
I'd appreciate that, in which case I could attempt my own translation.
