NASPH was formed in 2005 in order to further the study of philosophical hermeneutics and to foster dialogue in light of difference. While honoring the rootedness of philosophical hermeneutics in the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer we find that the force and value of philosophical hermeneutics lie in the development of dialogue that brings life to history and illuminates contemporary issues.
