Sretenskaya, S. V. Hermeneutics: Etymology and Semantics of a Term.

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2010-11 in rubric "Hermeneutics", pages 36-48.

Resume: Etymological and semantic link between words containing the same root herma, Hermes and hermeneutics, - allowed to form a position that hermeneutics is related to metaphysical facts, empirical experience (ratio) and life-death (death-revival) as ontological grounds for hermeneutic conceptions. The main aspect of the research is a look upon Hermes as trickster which metaphysical function is to mediate between the divine and human, macro cosmos and micro cosmos, life and death. Combining the two worlds Hermes suggests the border and the way to overcome this border.

Keywords: philosophy, hermeneutics, etymology, semantics, trickster, insight, ratio, Hermes, Apollo-Dionysus, Sisyphus
