One constant across the writings of most critical hermeneutists is the unwavering passion we share toward interpreting, understanding, and appropriating ideas in such ways that they find expression and meaning in the everyday lives of scholar practitioners. The days are now past when we can separate theory and practice. Ethical action in the study and practice of international development, technology, communication, transnational leadership, and education, among other arenas, can only come to the fore through new understandings about identity and the other. To help create and sustain conversations across disciplines and borders about the interpretive orientation, this site presents ideas and examples of projects characterized by an aim “… at the good life with and for others in just institutions.”
