Placing understanding/understanding place

This paper sets out an account of hermeneutics as essentially ‘topological’ in character (where ‘topology’ is understood as designating the philosophical inquiry into place) at the same time as it also argues that hermeneutics has a key role to play in making clear the nature of the topological. At the centre of the argument is the idea that place and understanding are intimately connected, that this is what determines the interconnection between topology and hermeneutics, and that this also implies an intimate belonging-together of place and thinking, of place and experience, of place and the very possibility of appearance, of presence, of being.
