FLORES-GALINDO, María de la Luz. Epistemology and Hermeneutics: Between commensurability and incommensurability. Cinta moebio [online]. 2009, n.36, pp.198-211. ISSN 0717-554X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-554X2009000300004.
Traditionally epistemology and hermeneutics have been separated, since the first deals with commensurability and the second with incommensurability. Nevertheless, in my opinion, nowadays it is possible to unite epistemology and hermeneutics if we start from a theory contemporary epistemology: the theory of the truth as rational acceptability in optimal epistemic conditions. This theory allows us to justify commensurability and to understand incommensurability.
