People Behind “HermeNet” “HermeNet: Hermeneutics Research Network” aims to be the public expression of a group of academics and scholars working in the field of philosophical hermeneutics. The group is based in Turin, and is led by a team of PhD candidates and Post-Doc scholars. The components of the workgroup come from different institutions and have experience in different fields of philosophy. They all have personal research programmes, but they also share a common interest in Hermeneutics, in its history and in its methods. HermeNet is also related to “Centro Studi Luigi Pareyson”, a long-tradition research institute, well reputed for the studies in the fields of Contemporary Western Philosophy (19th and 20th Centuries), Phenomenology and phenomenological tradition and Hermeneutics itself, named after the philosopher Luigi Pareyson, one of the preeminent names in the history of Italian Hermeneutics. The collaboration with such a relevant and longstanding institution provides a strong scientific guarantee to HermeNet and its work. The Idea Behind “HermeNet”: The team aims to organize scientific and public events in the area of Turin and North-Western Italy, but first of all aspires to share information in the field of Hermeneutics with other members of the scientific community interested in Hermeneutics as an historical tradition, a philosophical “style”, and a meta-philosophical framework. The blog will feature different materials (news, announcements, book and conference reviews and call for papers/call for proposals) on a weekly basis. Moreover, a Monthly Bulletin will collect the most important news and informations, and will be posted on the blog and sent to a mailing list of partners and interested subscribers. Expected results Sharing information and news about events, publications, conferences focused on the latest development in Philosophical Hermeneutics and connecting research groups working in the same fields will provide a collaborative exchange between scholars and institutions. The blog will encourage and stimulate new collaborations, joint projects and initiatives, but will also reinforce existing partnerships.
