NADAL PALAZON, Juan. Where Hermeneutics, Pragmatics and Discourse Analysis Meet: Some Remarks. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2019, vol.64, n.236, pp.193-215. ISSN 0185-1918.

This paper presents a review of concepts from the hermeneutic, pragmatic, and discourse analysis traditions, aiming to show that their approaches can be seen as complementary, even though these areas are often presented as not clearly differentiable, and even as unconnected or incompatible. It is shown that, although they come from different trends of thought, hermeneutics, pragmatics and discourse analysis, they actually share the object of study, purpose and starting point which is why, not surprisingly, they share conceptual matrices, regardless of their obvious differences in scope, precision and applicability.

Keywords : hermeneutics; pragmatics; discourse analysis; language, meaning.
