Its legacy for contemporary research on communication and culture can be summarized briefly with reference to three sets of concepts.

Over time, the principles and procedures of hermeneutics came to be applied to the arts as well as to other kinds of texts, and indeed to human experience as such. In a historical overview, Ricoeur (1981: ch. 1), himself a central contributor to modern hermeneutic philosophy, identified a transition in the early nineteenth century from a ‘regional’ to a ‘general’ hermeneutics which now covered both secular and religious texts. The transition was advanced particularly in the work of the German theologian and philosopher, Friedrich Schleiermacher.

The most basic, ancient insight of hermeneutics is that the meaning of a textual part can only be understood in relation to the whole of the text.
