Hermeneutics Humour

20th April 2007

This morning in the final examination for my advanced hermeneutics class, a student entered, looked at me very seriously and said in a very stern and threatening voice, “I’ll fuse your horizons!”

I giggled throughout the exam period (of course, perhaps I thought it was funny because of my lack of sleep combined with my enthralment with Gadamer). If you didn’t get it, don’t worry. I told it to a number of my colleagues and they were also clueless.

    I get it. Did you reply, “No, the arc of your horizon will fall far short of the arc of my horizon every time?”
