Understanding is always translated into language. The danger is we then take-for-granted a shared common meaning of language. Gadamer reminds us that we each understand according to prejudices born of our whole life experience. None of us can escape such prejudices for they are how we understand. A hermeneutic approach calls us to strive to articulate our prejudices, recognising that others may have an understanding that is different.
