About Book:

This critical investigation into Sabara's realism shows satyam as the real coincidence between reality and language. Sabara's statement: Sabda speaks, it makes known is the key to language. Language by its very nature neither objectifies nor subjectifies the status of reality. It presents through Sabda what it really is. Hermeneutics sustains this intrinsic function of language. It aims at overcoming the lack of understanding. This Indian approach asserts hermeneutics as experience in which man participates fully in reality and language as one whole. Genuine hermeneutics is thus the real response to what really is and that includes also the response to actual life.
