Hermeneutics is the branch of knowledge that deals with the problem of understanding and interpretation of texts, learnings, events, and so on. The question is whether the interpreter reproduces what he interprets or in his interpretation he participates creatively? Or, does the interpreter during his interpretation, eg. a work of art, a philosophical text or a historical event, bring his own assumptions? Any kind of understanding (interpretation) is always more than mere reproduction. Understanding is always possible only under the assumption that there are both its own assumptions, and individual and social-historical. If the thought of Karl Marx had properly understood and applied, it is certainly that a part of humanity would not have had communist systems, but it would have had well organized political systems.
