In The Tenets of Cognitive Existentialism, Dimitri Ginev draws on developments in hermeneutic phenomenology and other programs in hermeneutic philosophy to inform an interpretative approach to scientific practices. At stake is the question of whether it is possible to integrate forms of reflection upon the ontological difference in the cognitive structure of scientific research. A positive answer would have implied a proof that (pace Heidegger) “science is able to think.”

“Ginev’s book is a skilfully crafted … account of an hermaneutic-phenomenological philosophy of science… worthy of a placement along the spectrum of possible approaches to the problems raised by the practices of the natural sciences.”
